Why you should back Chelsea 

The Blues have been excellent at home this season. In nine Premier League matches at Stamford Bridge, Chelsea have five wins, two draws and two defeats. The two losses came to the top two teams in the table — Arsenal and Manchester City. On Friday, the Blues face a Fulham side that has lost five of 10 road matches this season.

In addition, Chelsea have a proven goal scorer in Kai Havertz. The 23-year-old forward from Germany leads the team and ranks 21st in the league in goals, with five. He scored the Blues’ last Premier League goal, in the team’s 1-0 victory over Crystal Palace on Jan. 15.

Why you should back Fulham

The Cottagers enter Friday’s match knowing they beat the Blues just three weeks ago. On Jan. 12, Fulham got a goal from former Chelsea midfielder Willian as well as the game-winner from Carlos Vinicius to earn a 2-1 victory at Craven Cottage. With the win, the Cottagers gave the Blues their fifth loss in their last seven Premier League outings.

In addition, Fulham will face a Chelsea side that will be shorthanded on Friday. The Blues are expected to be without N’Golo Kante, Denis Zakaria, Christian Pulisic, Edouard Mendy and Armando Broja. Also, Trevoh Chalobah is a doubt, and Joao Felix is set to sit out the last match of his three-match ban.
