Chelsea haven’t had the best start to the season and it got worse when the Blues were beaten 1-0 by Dinamo Zagreb in their Champions League opener, but not many will have expected the news that broke on Wednesday morning. After their third-consecutive away defeat, Chelsea announced that Tuchel had been sacked by the club, who felt it was “the right time to make this transition” in its search to “take the club forward.”

The Blues currently sit sixth in the Premier League, just five points behind leaders Arsenal, but they have already lost twice in the league to Leeds United and Southampton. They have a negative goal difference with only six teams conceding more goals than Chelsea in the Premier League, while no team in the top half of the table have scored fewer goals.

It may be the perfect time, then, for Fulham to try and end their hoodoo in this fixture. The Cottagers are just two points below their local rivals and are looking decent under Marco Silva, hoping to stay in the top flight for more than a season this time around. It hasn’t been the easiest of starts for Fulham who have already faced Liverpool, Arsenal and Tottenham, but they’ve performed well against the big teams.

On the opening weekend of the season Fulham were unfortunate not to get a win against Liverpool, instead having to settle for a draw, and there were only narrow defeats to Arsenal and Tottenham. This could also be Fulham’s second game of the season against Graham Potter, should Chelsea get their man, and they are the only team to beat Brighton in the Premier League this season, ending the Seagulls’ unbeaten start.

Fulham vs Chelsea match stats

Chelsea aren’t in good form but, in the past, that hasn’t mattered against Fulham. The Blues have lost just one of their 30 Premier League matches against Fulham and seven of the 74 league meetings in history. Of the 1,538 fixtures to have been played at least 50 times in English Football League history, Fulham’s win rate against Chelsea is the lowest.

However, Chelsea’s defence looks rocky and you can guarantee Aleksandar Mitrovic is licking his lips at the prospect of facing them. The Serbian has scored six goals in his opening six league games this season and and will be looking to become the first player to score in five consecutive Premier League matches in Fulham’s history.
