Chelsea to use new signings

Chelsea to use new signings

Chelsea takes advantage of their newly recruits when they go against Fulham, hoping for an improved standing. Chelsea had a busy January transfer window, spending over £300 million signing players to improve their squad. Fulham on the other hand is looking to improve their way of playing. From their recent matches, this squad is not playing well, and if they continue playing that way, they might lose their place in the league table. Looking at the league table, Fulham is in a better place. However, a win for Chelsea in this match will make them be at a better place than Fulham. This meeting will be on February 4, 2023, at 4:00 AM (GMT+8), as Chelsea welcomes Fulham.

Record-wise, it was the hosts who have a better record than the visitors, although in the standings, the visitors is the better team. The hosts are currently at the 10th of the league table with 29 points. The visitors on the other hand is at the seventh with 31 points. However, although the visitors are at the seventh spot, a win for the hosts could bring them at the sixth spot. From the 37 away games of the visitors against the hosts, they only won twice, lost to 22, and drawn 13. However, no team have won more than Fulham did after their return to the World Cup.

January have been a very busy month for Chelsea, acquiring one player after the other, as they hope for an improved squad. Given that they have several new players, they are hoping to finally have an upgrade with the way they play. The breakthrough of their signing would probably be their acquisition of Enzo Fernandez. This is after their unpleasant run right now in the Premier League, where they only manage to win twice in their last 11. They can gain confidence from the fact that they are unbeaten in their last 17 league games against their opponent. However, this is not a guarantee that they could win, especially if they still cannot take advantage of their attacks.

This squad has many absentees for this game, which would affect them badly. Due to suspension, they will be without Joao Felix. Sterling, Kante, Pulisic, Broja, Zakaria, and Mendy are all out in this game as well. James, Fofana, and Chilwell on the other hand are all doubtful for this game.

Fulham comes into this game with hopes to end their losing streak in the league, after suffering back-to-back league losses. Despite those consecutive loss, they are still fortunate that they remain to be at the seventh of the league table. Their two losses were from Newcastle United and Tottenham Hotspur, a narrow 1-0 loss. However, their last win is against Chelsea last January 13, where they aim for the same results. Additionally, this game is a must-win game if they want to relieve their European aspirations. Despite their unfortunate results, this is a team capable of surprising their opponents.

Considering their squad, this team is healthier than their opponent. Neeskens Kebano will be out in this game due to an Achilles injury, while Cedric Soares remains to be doubtful, due to fitness issues.
