helsea go in search of a much-needed lift on derby day as they make the short trip to face Fulham.

Graham Potter’s side sit tenth in the table, three points behind Fulham, after a run of just one win in eight Premier League games, leaving their manager under huge pressure so soon into his time in charge.

The Blues are on a miserable run away from home, last winning on the road in October, and will have to significantly improve if they are to return to winning ways on Thursday night against a side full of confidence.

Fulham have won all four of their matches since the World Cup, leaving them seventh in the table and within sight of the European spots.

Date, kick-off time and venue

The Premier League game is scheduled for an 8pm GMT on Thursday, January 12, 2023.

Craven Cottage will host the match.

Fulham vs Chelsea team news

Fulham will be without Aleksandar Mitrovic in a huge blow to Marco Silva, after the striker picked up his fifth yellow card of the season against Leicester.

Carlos Vinicius is likely to replace Fulham’s talisman, while Layvin Kurzawa is in contention to make his second Premier League start of the season. Willian could feature against his former club.

Denis Zakaria will hope to return to Chelsea’s starting XI after coming off the bench in the FA Cup against Manchester City, while Thiago Silva and Cesar Azpilicueta are also expected to come back into the side. Raheem Sterling missed out against City and is likely to be absent again as he battles a hamstring injury.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was absent from the squad at the Etihad due to a minor back injury – it’s unlikely he’ll be involved against Fulham even if he fully recovers from that issue.

Fulham vs Chelsea prediction

No match looks easy for Chelsea at the moment, but a derby at Craven Cottage really will be a test as Fulham continue to impress on their return to the Premier League.

With a long injury list and an attack short of confidence, it could be another frustrating night for Potter’s side.
