‘Their late equaliser against Tottenham showed there’s no question about the fight in their side which is essential when you’re down at the bottom.
‘Chelsea were pulled apart in their last league match at home to Manchester City. It was a Christmas period to forget for Frank Lampard’s men and they’ll want to get back to winning ways in their first away match of 2021.
‘Although Fulham have been playing well, I just think Chelsea will have too much going forward and with that in mind, I can see them nicking it by the odd goal.’
Fulham have failed to win in their last 19 games against Chelsea in all competitions, losing 12 times and drawing seven times and they haven’t defeated Chelsea at Craven Cottage since March 2016 when Luis Boa Morte netted the winner.
