FootyMAD's Fulham match preview

Footymad preview
History of the Chelsea v Fulham fixture

Chelsea prepare to entertain Fulham at Stamford Bridge on Saturday afternoon, looking to continue an impressive record. The Blues are clearly on top, winning 17 and drawing 13 of the 32 games played.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Stamford Bridge was less than a year ago, in December 2006, where the two teams cancelled each other out in an enthralling 2-2 draw in a Premiership match.

Recent respective form guides

Chelsea haven't lost in their last six home matches, but have drawn four of them. The goals for column just outweighs the goals against over this period, 6 to 4.

The away form of Fulham is pretty dire, accumulating just 1 victory and 1 draw from their last six played. While the Cottagers have hit 6 goals, 11 have hit the back of the wrong net.

Chelsea find themselves in a respectable 6th position, courtesy of the 11 points they have accumulated from 7 games. Fulham are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 6 points from 7 matches.

FootyMad's prediction ...

Its a close one to call, but I think that Blues's reasonable showing at home is going to see them scrape past Fulham. Home Win

Sequence statistics:
Chelsea Drawn last 2 games at home.
Failed to win in previous 2 home matches.
Fulham No win in the 4 most recent games.
