Chelsea take on struggling Fulham in a Premier League clash at Craven Cottage on Sunday and the Blues will be looking for nothing less than a win from this game as they look to strengthen their push for a top four finish this season.

They will be the favourites to win this one and if they do suffer a shock defeat, it will not be surprising to see manager Maurizio Sarri sacked amid the recent inconsistent performances of the club.

Chelsea will however be confident heading into this game after having defeated Tottenham 2-0 earlier this week.

This game presents a good opportunity for Sarri’s side to build momentum as they also will be playing against a team who have lost seven out of their past eight Premier League games.

Chelsea have no serious injury concerns heading into the game, as reported by BBC Sport.

Kepa Arrizabalaga, who was dropped for the game against Tottenham after refusing to be substituted during the League Cup final against Manchester City, is in contention to return and replace Willy Caballero between the sticks.

The report added that Davide Zappacosta could be set to return after having been out of action for the past two weeks due to illness.

This will be the 50th top flight fixture between the two sides, as reported by BBC Sport. 

Chelsea have clearly been the dominant side between the two sides historically as they have lost just three out of the previous 49 top-flight encounters played.
