We make the short trip to Stamford Bridge to take on Chelsea for the second time in 3 weeks
What a night at the Cottage the last game was!, Carlos Vinicius wrote his name in Fulham’s Hall of Fame scoring the winner against our closest rivals.
I’m sure this game will be different from the last, Chelsea will be looking for revenge, a win will see them leapfrog us, they’ll have a number of their injured players return. However we’ll have Mitro’ available, it’s about time he got back on the score-sheet! and this game would be the perfect time for yet another Mitro’ winner?
At this point, Fulham haven’t announced any new signings, two or three are imminent?, so I don’t think we’ll see any of the new players for this game, perhaps the Sunderland FA Cup replay?
Interestingly Chelsea, to date, are the biggest global spenders on transfers having spent £489million on 15 players, with more to follow in the last days of this window? Chelsea have, so far, managed to circumnavigate Financial Fair Play rules by signing players on extended contracts enabling them to spread the transfer fee over the life of the deal, for example the £89 million for Mykhailo Mudryk will be valued at £11 million a year. UEFA has said that it will change the rules, starting in the summer window, to limit the length a fee can be spread to 5 years.

Our recent record against Chelsea, got a little better after the last game, is still woful with 2 wins, 12 losses and 4 draws, wouldn’t it wonderful to do the double over them?
