Chelsea will take on Fulham as they travel to Craven Cottage on Monday hoping to grab maximum points from this away encounter. The Blues will come into the match on the back of a 1-0 victory over Brighton in the third of their EFL Cup fixture, so we can expect them to be confident going into this Premier League contest.
Mauricio Pochettino will opt for a 4-3-3 formation and could make a few changes to the first XI for this game. Cole Palmer is poised to be handed in first start in the Premier League this season after starting in the EFL cup fixture against Brighton as well.
4-2-3-1 Chelsea Predicted XI Vs Fulham
Robert Sanchez will continue to function as a goal keeper for the Blues after keeping a clean sheet in his last outing. Thiago Silva will form the customary centre-half partnership alongside Levi Colwill as they try to keep the Villans at bay during the game.
Marc Cucurella will fill in as the left-back while Axel Disasi looks to catch the eye as the right-back. Both of them will be given the freedom to make some overlapping runs out on the flanks.
Moises Caicedo and Conor Gallagher will play as the holding midfielders as they try to dictate the tempo of the game at the centre of the park.
Enzo Fernandez will play right ahead of them as an advanced attacking midfielder as he tries to make a difference for the Blues in the final third. Cole Palmer will fill in as the right winger while Mykhailo Mudryk tries to produce an influential display on the opposite flank.
Lesley Ugochukwu will be available for selection on the bench and might come on to impress in the second half if required.
Raheem Sterling will spearhead Chelsea’s attack on his own up top. He would be eager to find the back of the net and put his name on the scoresheet in this away encounter.
Nicolas Jackson will have to take a spot on the bench and might come on in the latter stages of the match if Chelsea are in need of a goal by then.
