Fulham host Chelsea this weekend in a London derby, and while the sides couldn’t be having a more contrasting season – with Chelsea in 1st place and Fulham rock-bottom – recent performances could well suggest a shock result for the home side.
Coral are backing the strugglers, now managed by disciplinarian Felix Magath, at 17/10 to have picked up a point or better at the final whistle.
Because of their plight, the Cottagers will be fighting for every point until the end of the season. They put in a great performance in the 1-1 draw with West Brom, and were in great showing in the 3-2 defeat at home to Liverpool. Such performances will give them hope going into the meeting with Chelsea.
Mourinho’s men recently put in a limp display in the Champions League against Galatasaray – which finished 1-1. They scored a last minute winner to get all three points at home to Everton. And the side drew 1-1 away to West Brom prior to the Toffees clash, so they’re certainly vulnerable if Fulham go at them in the game.
Fulham striker Kostas Mitroglou could start against the Blues, and the Greek goal machine is itching to make his full debut for the Cottagers. That could give them the advantage.
Bet: Fulham to win or draw against Chelsea @ 17/10 with Coral >>
