Chelsea faces Fulham at the Stamford Bridge in a match from the 34th round of the English Premier League. We believe this is a good moment to preview this fixture for you in our football betting tips this weekend.
Chelsea are not just 1/2-finalists in the Champions League, but they are also fighting hard to finish in the Premier League Top 4. Right now the Blues are 4th in the standings with 58 points which puts them four points behind the third Leicester City.
Thomas Tuchel doesn’t have a choice here and he will have to rotate his team for this game. The main reason for this is the fact that Chelsea are facing Real Madrid in the Champions League during the week. Some of the players will be tired after facing the Los Blancos, so Tuchel will have to rotate the team.
The German manager is doing really well since arriving in London. He qualified the club for the FA Cup final and now he’s close to reaching the Champions League final as well. Chelsea have lost just two games since Tuchel is coaching the team.
Fulham are very close to another relegation to the Championship, so they need to look for an upset here. The Cottagers are 7 points behind the 17th Brighton & Hove Albion and the safe zone, so you can see how bad their situation is.
Fulham are not helping themselves right now. Scott Parker’s team have won just one point in their last five matches – against Arsenal in the previous round. They need to step up again if they want to dream for survival.
That’s the football betting tips this weekend for the Premier League clash between Chelsea and Fulham at the Stamford Bridge. Chelsea will need to recover quickly after their Champions League game against Real Madrid. They can’t allow themselves to underrestimate Fulham, though.
