(5865 | Gistmaniac)


Time:3:05pm
Stadium: Craven Cottage
Referee:Graham Scott
Team News:
Scott Parker takes charge of Fulham following the sacking of Claudio Ranieri and, essentially, his task is to ensure the club’s return to the Championship is as bump-free as possible. Nevertheless, there are notable highs for Fulham to aim for before now and relegation, including a first win in 18 attempts against their local rivals. Chelsea have monopolised this particular west London feud and will feel confident of prevailing again, especially after their midweek victory over Tottenham. Willy Caballero started that game and it will be intriguing to see if he retains his place ahead of Kepa Arrizabalaga.
