How Chelsea are expected to file out against Fulham

Chelsea will seek to return to winning ways in the Premier League after suffering their first defeat this season in a not-too-good way against London rivals Tottenham last weekend.

With the Blues expected to face Fulham later on Sunday, it has been described as a very dicey test for the Maurizio Sarri team knowing that their opponent is now being managed by a former manager of the Stamford Bridge Claudio Ranieri and he could seek to prove a point to his former employers.

Therefore Sarri will not be taking the game likely and is expected to have a strong team but with goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga to be in the goal post while Azpilicueta, Rudiger, David Luiz and Alonso could be seen at the defence.

However, N’Golo Kante, Jorginho and Mateo Kovacic could start at the middle with Ross Barkley could be placed on hold to come save the game at any point needed.

Brazilian Willian, Belgium’s Eden Hazard and Spanish striker Alvaro Morata could also get the nod for the attack in the all-important game.

Another drop in point for the West London team could mean disaster as they could miss out of the top four spot pending what the results of other Sunday fixtures will be.
