We’ve got ourselves a west London derby on Friday night, with Chelsea making the short trip to Craven Cottage bidding to resurrect their ailing Premier League form and challenge for major domestic honours this season.

Our prediction is that the visitors will find life difficult against their neighbours despite the betting odds suggesting that Frank Lampard’s side are heavily likely to win the clash, with Fulham ready to scrap their way out of trouble.

Chelsea Look Too Short in the Betting for Derby

It’s not been a fun few weeks for Chelsea whose form has really gone off a cliff since beating Leeds United at the beginning of December. Just as the supporters were starting to think they were a championship-winning side, four points from six games suggested otherwise.

Lampard is under pressure to get his team out of a hole after defeats against Everton, Wolves, Arsenal and Manchester City, with Timo Werner having been a misfiring forward for much of the campaign and the manager is struggling to get the balance right between defence and attack.

Can Fulham Stun Chelsea with a Premier League Win?

Fulham are in with a fighting chance of staying in the division this season, with Scott Parker’s side having avoided defeat in 50% of their games at Craven Cottage this term and they were on a run of four consecutive draws before COVID-19 in the camp denied them the chance to play any further games.

It was noticeable during December that the Cottagers were defensively sounder and held Liverpool to a 1-1 draw, while also playing out goalless draws against Brighton and Southampton, with the team ready to compete hard for survival.

We think that the best way to play this game is backing Fulham on the Asian Handicap with a one-goal start. We can get even money and it means a profit if they avoid defeat and money back if Chelsea triumph by a single goal.
