Fulham host Chelsea in the Premier League tonight as they look to pile more misery on their west London rivals.

Marco Silva’s side sit above Chelsea in the Premier League table after a run of three wins in a row lifted the newly-promoted side to seventh.

Chelsea, meanwhile, have dropped to 10th after a run of just one win in eight Premier League games, with Graham Potter’s side also out of the FA Cup following their defeat to Manchester City at the weekend.

Fulham will look to continue their impressive start, but will be without Aleksandar Mitrovic and his 11 Premier League goals so far this season. By contrast, Chelsea’s top scorer in the Premier League has just four goals.
