The home team, Fulham, performed well in their recent FA Cup victory against Hull City, despite resting key player Aleksandar Mitrovic.

However, coach Marco Silva will field his strongest lineup for the London derby.

Mitrovic and midfielder Palhinha will return to the starting lineup, while Neeskens Kebano remains out with an Achilles injury.

Chelsea, on the other hand, will be looking to bounce back from a heavy FA Cup loss to Manchester City, but with several absentees due to injury, they may struggle to earn more than a point in the midweek match.

Players such as Kante, Pulisic, Loftus-Cheek, Fofana, James, and Chilwell will not be available, but Raheem Sterling is expected to start.

Fulham vs Chelsea Head-to-head

In recent head-to-head history, Chelsea has been the dominant team, having defeated Fulham in all seven of their previous meetings.

Fulham has only scored two goals in their last eight encounters with Chelsea.

In the last three head-to-head matches, only one has had three or more goals.

Fulham vs Chelsea Prediction

Chelsea has been struggling to score recently and Fulham will be without their top scorer on Thursday, but they have greatly improved their defensive play since the World Cup break.

Based on the odds, betting on Fulham to win and there being under 2.5 goals in the game, or a 1-0 correct score for Fulham, both have good value at 7.00 and 12.00 odds respectively.
