Chelsea vs Fulham today

The London Derby match between Chelsea and Fulham will take place at Stamford Bridge on Friday night.

After adding a number of key players in January, Chelsea's starting lineup could be very different from what it was before.

Fulham hopes to defeat the Blues for the second time in a row. At the start of January, the Cottagers upset Chelsea 2-1 at Crave Cottage.

Fulham was sixth in the league prior to the game.The Cottagers have surrendered back-to-back league games since overcoming Chelsea.

Chelsea is in 10th place going into the weekend, so they have a long way to go to rank in the top six. In a very closely contested fight for Europe, Chelsea and sixth-place Brighton are only separated by two points.

In their last two contests, the Blues are undefeated. Chelsea has gradually improved since losing to Fulham, most recently drawing nil-nil with Liverpool.

With five goals scored and four goals allowed over the previous six games, Chelsea has earned eight points.

Graham Potter is having a strong defensive performance. Chelsea's issues, however, have been with the offense.

Raheem Sterling's acquisition did not result in any goals throughout the first half of the season. It is believed that Enzo Fernandez and Mudryk would help the club score more goals.

Chelsea has a record of 5W-2D-2L at home and plays well there. At home this season, they have outgained their opponents 13-7.

Fulham is on a two-game losing streak despite having 12 points from their past six games. Over the course of the previous six games, they have scored eight goals while giving up four.

The Cottagers have performed well this league season while traveling. The record of Marco Silva's squad is 4W-1D-5L with 14 goals scored and 14 goals conceded while on the road.

Chelsea's injury list, according to Graham Potter, features nine players as of Friday night's match. Injuries have ruled out Edouard Mendy, Ben Chilwell, Edouard Broja, Christian Pulisic, N'Golo Kante, Sterling, Wesley Fofana, Denis Zakaria, and Reece James.

Due to a ban, forward Joao Felix will be absent from the contest. Early in January, he was sent off with a straight red against Fulham. Mudryk may make his complete debut and begin the contest on the left side.

Neeskans Kebano, who is out with a calf injury, is the only player on Silva's injury list. Silva will be hopeful Aleksandar Mitrovic can score after Fulham went without a goal in their past two league games.
