Chelsea vs Fulham
English Premier League.
Date: Sunday, 2 December 2018
Kick-Off at 12:00 UK/ 13:00 CET
Venue: Stamford Bridge (London).
Sarri lost his first match as the Chelsea coach last week in an away fixture against Tottenham. He will be disappointed with his team’s performance and will want them to get back to their previous form as soon as possible.
With that defeats to Spurs they fell to 4th position in the table. After 13 matches, they have 28 points and are 7 points behind the leaders-City. They have 8 wins in that run and have scored 28 goals too.
Over 2.5 goals were scored in total in 7 of their last 9 competitive matches. They have not lost any game at home till now. In 4 of their last 5 home matches, the final score had more than 2.5 goals in total.
Fulham are already in the relegation zone after 13 rounds are completed. They conceded 33 goals from their league games so far, which makes them the worst defensive unit in the competition. The Cottagers will have to find something magical to beat the Blues this Sunday.
The highlight of their week is a win against Southampton which came after a long streak of defeats. They had a 7 match losing streak going on before that win in all competitions. The final score of 6 of their previous 9 matches had a total of more than 2.5 goals.
At present Claudio Ranieri’s side are on a 5 match losing streak on the road. This is not likely to be broken on Sunday as their opponents had been prolific at home. In the last 3 away matches, the final score had less than 2.5 goals for the Whites.
As two great footballing minds clash, we can expect a great match for sure. The visitors will have to be on point with defense or else Hazard and his mates will run them over.

Even though Fulham are fresh from a win at home, they are on an active 4 match losing streak in away fixtures. Also the hosts have not lost against this away side since 2006. So we can bet on Chelsea to win at both halftime and fulltime with 1.55 odd.
Chelsea are strong at home. But problems in their defense were clear after the match against Spurs. Fulham have found 3 goals in their last match. So with attacking talent plenty in both the teams we can expect a goal fest on Sunday. In 6 matches played by both the teams this season the final score had more than 3.5 goals. Thus a bet can be placed on a score with over 3.5 goals with 1.93 odd.
