Fulham v Chelsea Football Match – 17.04.2013 – Premier League Preview, Prediction, Squad
Fulham v Chelsea Football Match – 17.04.2013 at Craven Cottage (London) for a Premier League match. M. Dean will be the match referee.
Fulham Football Club hasn’t had a good season this year and they are currently in mid table in 10th position with 40 points. It will be hard to them to qualify for the European competitions next year and it will seem like they will remain in mid table at the end of the season with only a few fixtures left remaining. In their last 5 matches, they have drew twice, won twice and lost once. Their recent match was against Aston Villa, which ended in a 1-1 draw playing away. This match will not be easy for them, as they will be playing against a top side who will be desperate for points to stay in the top 4.
Chelsea has had a poor season so far and recently losing the F.A Cup against Manchester City from controversial Referee discussions that cost them the match. Chris Foy failed to see 2 controversial discussions, one being a shirt pulling from Kompany to Torres inside the box that could have easily been a penalty, also Aguero’s 2 footed on David Luiz could have been a red card and could have changed the game. In the Premier League, they still remain in the top 4, with 58 points sitting in 4th position with 1 game in hand over Arsenal who are in 3rd position with 59 points. Chelsea will be desperate to win their last remaining fixtures to qualify for next seasons Champions League. In their last 5 matches, they have won 3 times and lost twice. Their recent match was against Sunderland and beat them 2-1 at home. This match will be different, as they are playing away and their away matches recently has been poor, losing to Southampton and Manchester City.
I think Chelsea will just manage a win in this match, but it will be really hard for them, as most of their players are tired. Torres will need to start this match, as he has been in fine form recently especially wearing that mask of his.
Match Prediction: Chelsea Win. Correct Score 1-2
