It’s been a tough spell for Chelsea boss Graham Potter, but with a wealth of reinforcements acquired last month, the new faces should give the Blues a much-needed boost when they welcome Fulham to Stamford Bridge on Friday evening.

Marco Silva’s side have been one of the surprise packages in the Premier League this season, but, while they might prove tough to break down, it looks like the Cottagers could well come away from the Bridge empty-handed.

Team news

Chelsea boss Potter has a decision to make on record signing Enzo Fernandez, following the Argentine’s deadline day move from Benfica.

Having completed his £106.8m move to the Blues, Fernandez should be ready to start from the off for his Premier League debut, while fellow January arrival Mykhailo Mudryk is also pushing for a starting role.

Mateo Kovacic is likely to feature in the starting XI following the departure of Jorginho to Arsenal on deadline day, but the game comes too soon for the injured N’Golo Kante and Denis Zakaria.

Joao Felix is still suspended after his red card in the last meeting between these sides at Craven Cottage on 12th January.

As for Fulham, the Cottagers have no fresh injury concerns with Neeskens Kebano the only player remaining on the sidelines.

Silva has his own decisions to make regarding new arrivals, with Sasa Lukic and Cedric Soares pushing for their Fulham debuts.

Chelsea to win and both teams to score (No) @ 6/4

Having splashed the cash during the January window, expectations are high about what the new arrivals at Stamford Bridge can do.

Chelsea do have a strong home record against Fulham in the league, having not lost at home to the Cottagers in their last 18 meetings.

It was back in October 1979 in Division Two that Fulham last picked up a league win at the home of their west London rivals.

Chelsea’s last three home games with Fulham have ended with the Blues winning 2-0 and the hosts to win to nil looks good value once again here.

#PickYourPunt – Kai Havertz to score anytime and over 4.5 Chelsea corners @ 11/4

Having scored both goals in this fixture last season, Kai Havertz might well strike again in this encounter on Friday evening.

With five Premier League goals this season, the German international is the Blues’ top goalscorer and could add to his tally against the Cottagers.

Chelsea have averaged over five corners a game in the Premier League this season and going with over 4.5 team corners and a Havertz goal anytime is worth considering with #PickYourPunt.
