Chelsea vs Fulham: Predictions, tips & betting odds

Chelsea fans Stamford BridgeGetty

Chelsea welcome Fulham to Stamford Bridge on Friday evening in a Premier League west London derby.

The Blues made headlines in the January transfer window spending an eye-watering amount of money, but the team need to start picking up points if they are to secure European football next season.

Indeed, Chelsea are three places below their neighbours in the table with Fulham enjoying an impressive campaign despite two defeats in their last two league games.

These two sides met three weeks ago at Craven Cottage where Fulham ran out 2-1 winners and another success for Marco Silva's men is priced at 9/2 (5.50) with bet365.

Chelsea vs Fulham first goal scorer odds

Kai Havertz is offered at 6/1 (7.00) to break the deadlock on Friday evening the same price as Mason Mount, while Pierre Emerick Aubameyang is offered at 9/2 (5.50).

With 11 goals in 17 league appearances this season Aleksandr Mitrovic has been one of the division's most impressive forwards and Fulham's Serbian international is priced at 13/2 (7.50) to open the scoring.

Chelsea vs Fulham preview

Despite failing to score in their last two league matches, Fulham have been reliable in the final third this term scoring in 17 of their 21 topflight encounters.

Chelsea for their part have conceded in 13 of their 20 games, with only three of their clean sheets coming at Stamford Bridge.

There should therefore be interest in backing the visitors to score, while the Blues' home record this term does not inspire confidence.

Potter's side have won five league games in front of their own fans but those wins came against sides that are currently, 14th, 16th, 17th, 18th and 12th in the table respectively.

Chelsea vs Fulham tips and predictions

Fulham are offered at 4/6 (1.66) to score a goal which looks like an interesting bet, while taking them to win with a +1 Asian handicap at 43/50 (1.86) should also appeal.
