Fulham vs Chelsea
England – Premier League
Sunday, 3 March 2019
Kick-off at 14.05 UK/ 15.05 CET
Venue: Craven Cottage (London).
Chelsea, and in fact none of the top-six teams, are in threat of being overtaken by a side other than those in their tier. They have all posted a comfortable lead as of now, and are sure of a European spot as such.
The only question remaining for them is who would represent the English in the Champions League, and who in the Europa.
The Blues are currently three points away from the fourth spot, and with them taking on Fulham, which has all but ensured relegation at the end of the season, the objective would be a huge win.
The odds are already massively stacked in favor of Maurizio Sarri’s men. Fulham is the 19th team in a league of 20 and has conceded the most goals in the competition, 63. The next best is 55.
- The last four games saw four Chelsea wins.
- The last ten wins in a row were also registered by the same team.
- Overall h2h record is 18 wins for Chelsea, against a single loss, which came in 2006.
- At this venue, the record reads nine wins for the guests and just one loss.
- Eight of the last eleven matches at this venue saw two or more goals by Chelsea.
Fulham lost their last four games in a row, and eight of their last nine. They have also conceded two or more goals in their last nine matches. Chelsea, on the other hand, may have found life hard against some top-quality sides in the recent match-days, but Fulham poses no such threat. Moreover, h2h ties unequivocally point towards absolute domination by the Blues.
The last four games were won by them. The team also recorded the last ten wins in a row, and 18 of the last 19. At this venue, Chelsea registered nine of the last ten wins. More than that, the team scored two or more goals in eight of their last eleven visits.
