Chelsea to take sixth place

Chelsea and Fulham meets in a match that both aims to improve their place in the league table with a win in this match. While Chelsea can move to the sixth place with a win, Fulham can either move up to the sixth as well, or retain the fifth spot.

Chelsea and Fulham meets on January 13, 2023, at 4:00 AM (GMT+8), with Fulham playing as hosts to Chelsea.

Although Fulham is in a better place in league table, when it comes to meeting each other, Chelsea has a better record. From the 87 matches these two teams played, Chelsea won 50 of those, compared to the 11 victories by Fulham. The 26 remaining games on the other hand all remain to be in draw. Moreover, from the 74 league games between these two teams, the visitors won only seven. The hosts on the other hand remains unbeaten in their last 20 matches against the visitors in the league.

With their struggles over the recent months, Chelsea’s current position in the league table is not surprising. They are now at the 10th of the league table with 25 points across their name, but a win would give them an additional three points. Chelsea suffered a shocking loss against Man City, a disappointing loss in fact. Since they are struggling, a defeat is not surprising, but a 4-0 loss is a frustrating one. Coming into this game, they are hoping to halt their struggles and win in this match. With desperation, this team just hopes to finally have a shot in the arm. Their players need to prove a point in this match.

With the number of injured players this team has, it is not surprising that they are struggling this season. Actually, Chelsea’s injured players are in double figures once again. Chilwell, Loftus-Cheek, Mendy, Kante, James, Broja, and Fofana, are some of those, and have no plans of returning. Fortunately, Thiago Silva, Cesar Azpilicueta, Marc Cucurella, and Dennis Zaakaria, will returns for their XI.

Consistency have been the key for Fulham, which is why they continuously punch above the league table this season. With 28 points across their names, although a win would only make them either retain their spot, they can have better chances to enter the top four. They are coming from a 2-0 win against Hull City, and will be hoping for the same result in this game. What is good for this team is the fact that they have a very talented squad with them, who are able to make miracles for this game. Additionally, they are aiming to take advantage of going against a shorthanded Chelsea in this match.

Aleksandar Mitrovic will not be available in this match, following the suspension he needs to serve. Aside from that, this squad heads into this game with a healthy squad, as they have no fresh concerns.

Prediction:

Chelsea (1.5)
Odds: 0.84
