Chelsea face Fulham in the Premier League and we can tell you all the team news, as well as how to watch this London derby.
The two teams played out a very entertaining match when they last met, with Fulham winning 2-1 after Portuguese star Joao Felix got sent off on his Chelsea debut. The forward signed on loan from Atletico Madrid.
Fulham are doing a lot better than expected, and it would add a lot of unnecessary pressure on Blues manager Graham Potter should they lose again to their London rivals this season.
This is set up for a cracking match in England’s top flight, and we cannot see how it plays out when the two meet.

Chelsea vs Fulham team news
N’Golo Kante, Ben Chilwell, Armando Broja, Christian Pulisic and Edouard Mendy have been sidelined for a while and the worrying thing is that there is no possible return dates for any of these players. Raheem Sterling and Denis Zakaria could return in the middle of February.
Wesley Fofana and Reece James are close to returning, and will face a late fitness test before the Fulham match; however, this match may come to soon for them. Joao Felix has one last game left in his suspension.
Meanwhile, Fulham are in a better position as they only have one player missing for this match. Neeskens Kebano is injured for the foreseeable.
With Chelsea having a lot of issues, their team is a lot easier to predict, and we believe it could be filled with some youth as well as some experienced stars.
Meanwhile, Fulham will be hoping players like Aleksandr Mitrovic on playing at their best as they need to in order to get something out of the game.
Predicted Chelsea XI: Kepa; Chalobah, Silva, Badiashile, Cucurella; Gallagher, Kovacic; Mudryk, Chukwuemeka, Mount; Havertz
Predicted Fulham XI: Leno; Tete, Diop, Ream, Robinson; Palhiniha, Reed; Reid, Pereira, Willian; Mitrovic
The two English sides have played each other 31 times in the Premier League and they have been dominated by the Blues. Fulham have won twice, Chelsea have won 19 times and there has been 10 draws, via Premier League.
