While I suspect, at the beginning of every campaign in August the majority of football fans hope that their team has a successful season, my hope is that T*ttenham get relegated.
On the other hand, I like it when Chelsea play Fulham away and it is probably my favourite away game of all, mainly because Craven Cottage’s location being so close to Stamford Bridge makes the fixture feel like a home match.
However, it appears that the Cottagers’ spell in the top-flight is all but over and, with every Chelsea player fighting for a place in the FA Cup Final, Thomas Tuchel’s men will show their guests no mercy.
As well as that, the prospect of The Blues reaching the Champions League Final after a great result in Madrid against Real will further motivate the Chelsea players to prove their worth to the manager.
In a tight game at Craven Cottage earlier this season, Chelsea were the 1-0 winners and a ten-man Fulham lost out to a Mason Mount strike, the only goal of the game.
The last time the Cottagers visited Chelsea’s ground was in December 2018, the goals scored by Pedro and Ruben Loftus-Cheek giving the home side a 2-0 win.
With many of social media’s PlayStation footballers castigating Timo Werner, I’m keeping faith with the German in as much as he’ll start to prove his worth soon and begin to bang the goals home regularly.
With that, I’ll be placing my money on him to score at any time as well as predicting that there will be over 5.5 goals in this game, the prices being 17.00 for the double with our friends at FansBet.
