Chelsea vs Fulham game live at EPL Maskani this weekend

On Saturday, the Premier League will resume with a delicious London rivalry. Chelsea will host Fulham, the nearby team, at Stamford Bridge in the early kickoff.

The two teams are at variance by a combined four points going into Gameweek 21, with Chelsea in 10th position and Fulham in 13th.

Following their respective losses in the EFL Cup semifinals this past week, both clubs will be motivated to win when they return to league play.

Despite having 74% of the ball and 18 shots at the Riverside on Tuesday, Mauricio Pochettino's team lost 1-0 to Middlesbrough, a Championship team.

The Blues had won their last three games, including a 4-0 FA Cup thumping of Preston, after winning the Premier League against Crystal Palace and Luton.

Chelsea has not only won all seven of their recent games at home, but they have also won nine of their previous ten games at Stamford Bridge.

Although Pochettino's team hasn't been very consistent this season, they seem to have settled into a groove at home lately.

On Wednesday, Fulham lost 2-1 to Liverpool. The team had led at Anfield before giving up two goals in the second half.

The Cottagers, who lost their lead in the first leg, now need to overcome a deficit in order to go to the EFL Cup final, just as Chelsea did.

With three victories and three defeats in their last six Premier League games, Marco Silva's team has recently shown extreme inconsistency.

Fulham will be even more eager to defeat their opponents this weekend after losing six of their previous ten league games, including three of the past four.

Head-to-head: Mykhailo Mudryk and Armando Broja goals helped Chelsea win the rematch 2-0 at Craven Cottage back in October.

In the grand scheme of things, the Blues have won eight of the last ten Premier League games against the Cottagers, losing just one of the previous 23.

Team news: Due to injuries, Chelsea is still missing Robert Sanchez, Ben Chilwell, Wesley Fofana, Romeo Lavia, and Reece James. Nicolas Jackson is at AFCON in the meantime.

Although Fulham's Alex Iwobi, Calvin Bassey, and Fode Ballo-Tour are all competing in the Africa Cup of Nations, Adama Traore and Tim Ream are unable to compete due to injuries.

It is anticipated that Fulham will not come away from Stamford Bridge with much, since they have only triumphed in one of their last 23 league encounters with Chelsea.

Commentators believe that on Saturday, both clubs will score. Chelsea, however, is certain that they will defeat the Cottagers.
