Chelsea have struggled against their various city rivals recently with just four wins in their last 11 London derbies –
but their home record and Fulham’s road form suggests they can claim a win over their West London neighbours this weekend.
Mauricio Pochettinio’s men are unbeaten in seven at home across all competitions, winning five of those, and Fulham have been poor travellers this season.
The Cottagers have picked up just six of their 24 Premier League points away from home (W1, D3, L6) and have scored just nine goals in their 10 away games.
Despite Fulham’s lack of goals away from home, a Chelsea win and both teams to score has a good chance here.
The Blues have managed just two clean sheets at Stamford Bridge in the league – and both of those have come against teams in the bottom three.
Fulham found a way through at Anfield in the cup and five of their nine away goals have come in their last five trips, so they can get on the scoresheet here,
A 2-1 victory for Chelsea is the correct score prediction as these sides look fairly evenly matched and just four points separate them in the league.

so this could be a fairly close game decided by a one-goal margin.
Mykhailo Mudryk scored in the reverse fixture and comes into the game in reasonable form with two goals in his last five appearances, so the Chelsea man appeals as a potential anytime scorer.
