The fixtures are certainly coming thick and fast at this stage of the season.
Hard on the heels of what was a delightful win against Tottenham Hotspur, on Wednesday evening, Chelsea make the short trip down the road to take on Fulham, in a Premier League fixture, this Sunday.
The West London derby is always a fixture we look forward to and this one is no exception.
Maurizio Sarri, who has seen his stock among the Chelsea support rise after the last two fixtures, will be looking to keep the momentum going and take the three points on offer in order to keep in the hunt for a top-four finish and its subsequent place in the Champions League next season.
However, our neighbours are having a turbulent season and yesterday axed their second manager of the campaign when the former Chelsea boss, Claudio Ranieri was axed.
The sacking saw a former Chelsea player, in the shape of Scott Parker, given the role in a caretaker basis.
Parker, although keeping the club in the Premier League might be a step too far, will be looking for his charges to make an instant impression and what better way than beating big brother from down the road.
As usual, we’re asking you to second-guess the starting eleven that Maurizio Sarri will select, will the Italian restore Kepa between the sticks, could there be a rare start for Hudson-Odoi?
Just two things for you to ponder over.
To participate, simply drop your predicted starting eleven into the comments feature beneath this article and we’ll see if any gets it exactly right.
