Team News

Chelsea
Fulham
  • A number of Chelsea players have suffered setbacks in their recovery from injury, and, as such, the Blues are set to be without no fewer than 12 players here.
  • Nicolas Jackson is away at the Africa Cup of Nations.
  • Fulham will remain without injured duo Adama Traore and Tim Ream.
  • Calvin Bassey, Alex Iwobi and Fode Ballo-Toure are all away at the Africa Cup of Nations.

Prediction

  • After winning three matches in a row, Chelsea turned in an uninspiring performance in their Carabao Cup semi-final first leg at Middlesbrough on Tuesday evening.
  • Mauricio Pochettino's side now play their next three games at home, where their performances and results have been, for the most part, better.
  • Fulham also suffered defeat in their first leg clash in midweek, but provided a stronger account of themselves than their west London counterparts.
  • The Cottagers went ahead at Anfield, but succumbed to a second-half Liverpool comeback to head into the second leg 2-1 down.
  • The visitors beat Arsenal in their last league fixture, but have struggled to find consistency away from home this season; they've won just one of their last six on the road.
  • This one could end with both sides sharing the points.
