Chelsea will be contesting in another London Derby in the Premier League when they tackle newly-promoted Fulham at Stamford Bridge on Sunday afternoon.

The Blues suffered their first competitive defeat of the campaign when they lost 3-1 to Tottenham Hotspur at Wembley last Saturday.

Though they did see off PAOK Thessaloniki 4-0 in the Europa League to cement top spot in Group L, they’ll be looking to get back to winning ways in the top-flight and get their title contention up to speed.

Victory for them is quoted at odds of (1.18) with BetKing.

Claudio Ranieri started life at Craven Cottage off to the perfect start with a 3-2 win over Southampton last weekend. Victory against the side he managed between 2000 and 2004 would be sensational and it’s a whooping (14.00) with the same bet firm to do that.

The game ending in a draw is priced at (7.50).

Andre Schurrle was on the books for Chelsea when they last clashed with Fulham in the league in March 2014 and the German scored a hattrick in a 3-1 win.

He could be become the fourth player to score for and against the Blues in a London derby after Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink, William Gallas and Cesc Fabregas, and is tipped to do so anytime in this match at odds of (5.50) with BetKing.
