Chelsea predicted lineup vs Fulham

Chelsea goes head to head against Fulham at the Craven Cottage Stadium on 12th January, where Chelsea plays away. Currently, Fulham rank 7th, while Chelsea hold the 9th position. Alley sport brings you the Chelsea predicted lineup vs Fulham.

Ten points separate Chelsea from a place in the top four, but Brentford – who occupy the seventh and potentially final continental place – are only one point clear of their near neighbours having played two games more.

Since the world cup break resumption, Chelsea have played just twice beating Bournemouth at Stamford Bridge and drawing away to Nottingham Forest on New Year’s Day.

2022/23 has been a dramatic season thus far for Chelsea. The Blues saw a raft of changes in their first-team squad, with Todd Boehly sanctioning big-money deals. And Thomas Tuchel lost his job just a month into the new term.

Graham Potter replaced the German tactician, but their fortunes have not changed considerably as they have won only one of their last eight domestic games.

Team News

Reece James (knee) and Ben Chilwell (hamstring) are the most notable absentees for Chelsea. In addition, Edouard Mendy (shoulder), Wesley Fofana (knee), Ruben Loftus-Cheek (calf), N’Golo Kante (hamstring), and Armando Broja (knee) are the other Chelsea players on the sidelines.

Chelsea team news and prediction

Chelsea’s medical team continue to work overtime on long-term absentees N’Golo Kante and Armando Broja – who have since been joined by Reece James and his latest knee problem, which could rule him out for up to a month.

Wesley Fofana is unlikely to make the cut here either, but there is optimism over Ruben Loftus-Cheek – who has now returned to training from a calf injury – and Ben Chilwell, although the latter may have to wait until the trip to Fulham next week. Edouard Mendy, meanwhile, is still absent with his shoulder issue.

A recall to the midfield should be in order for Mateo Kovacic – who may very well take the place of Jorginho rather than the emerging Denis Zakaria – while Christian Pulisic can feel confident of holding his place on the left flank.
