Fulham vs Chelsea LIVE: Blues look to build on Brighton win in Prem London derby



CHELSEA travel up the road to face London rivals Fulham with a mission to end their Premier League winless run tonight.

The Blues’ loss to Aston Villa meant that they hadn’t won any of their last three league fixtures.

But Mauricio Pochettino’s men will have the wind in their sails after knocking Brighton out of the Carabao Cup on Wednesday night.

However, Marco Silva’s side also booked themselves a fourth-round spot by beating Championship side Norwich at home.

Furthermore, the Cottagers managed to snatch four points off Chelsea during the 2022/23 season.

What is the team news?

Marco Silva has no fresh injury concerns but the Fulham boss could be tempted to pick Alex Iwobi again who scored on his first start against Norwich.


Meanwhile, Chelsea’s injury crisis shows no sign of letting up as Mauricio Pochettino has confirmed that Ben Chilwell has sustained a hamstring injury.

And if deemed serious, the Englishman will join; Carney Chukwuemeka (knee), Malang Sarr (rib), Romeo Lavia (ankle), Marcus Bettinelli (knee), Travoh Chalobah (hamstring), Christopher Nkunku (knee) and Reece James (hamstring) on the sidelines.

However, Benoit Badiashile and Noni Madueke could return to the fold as the pair are now back in training.

But Malo Gusto misses out once more after picking up a straight red against Aston Villa last weekend and he’ll be joined by Nicolas Jackson who has already earned five yellow cards.
