This weekend's Premier League action gets underway at Craven Cottage with a huge West London derby. Chelsea's trip to Fulham could be worth a lot more than three points as the pressure starts to mount on Blues boss, Graham Potter. Ahead of this must-win match for Chelsea, here at you'll find the very best free bet offers and match odds from our partners at BoyleSports.

Pressure Building on Potter

Chelsea are languishing in tenth in the Premier League having taken one point from a possible six so far in 2023. To compound matters, The Blues were on the receiving end of a heavy 4-0 loss against Manchester City in the FA Cup last weekend.

Fulham's Dream Return to Top Flight

Fulham are three points and three places better off than their local rivals having won all three league games since returning to action after the World Cup. Marco Silva's side won 1-0 away at Leicester City in their last league game before cruising to 2-0 FA Cup win at Hull City last weekend.

Fulham v Chelsea: Head-to-head

Chelsea have a superb record in this fixture, winning seven consecutive matches against Fulham. The Blues are unbeaten in 21 matches against their local rivals, a run stretching back to 2006. In fact, Fulham have beaten Chelsea just once since 1979.

Betting Tips

Chelsea's excellent record in this fixture coupled with their desperate need for three points should probably give them the edge at Craven Cottage. An away win should be considered at 11/10.

Only the division's top three teams have conceded fewer goals that Chelsea so far this season but it's their ability to score goals that has been a major problem. The Blues have scored just twenty goals in their seventeen league games so far. Under 2.5 match goals is a real possibility and is available at Evens.

You can combine both suggested markets by backing Chelsea to win and under 2.5 match goals at 4/1. Alternatively, in the correct score market, a 1-0 or 2-0 away win is available at 15/2 and 10/1, respectively.

Raheem Sterling and Kai Havertz are Chelsea's joint-highest scorers in the Premier League this season with just four goals apiece. Following the announcement that Joao Felix has signed on loan until the summer, both players will want to impress in an attempt to retain their place in Graham Potter's first eleven. You can back Sterling or Havertz to score at any time at Fulham at odds of 7/4 or 2/1, respectively.

Match Odds

  • Fulham: 23/10
  • Draw: 12/5
  • Chelsea: 11/10
