Thomas Tuchel’s reign at Chelsea has so far been an impressive one, with the Blues through to the FA Cup final, faring well in the Champions League semi-finals and into the top four of the Premier League.
But there’s still room for improvement – and their home form domestically might be one of those areas for the manager to focus on. The Blues have won just one of their last four at Stamford Bridge in the league, with their two most recent home games being a defeat to West Brom and a draw with Brighton.
Victory here will give them not only a comfortable gap down to fifth-place West Ham in the battle for a top-four finish, but also push local rivals Fulham closer toward the trapdoor of relegation.
Scott Parker’s side were gaining ground on the teams above them up until a month ago, but four straight defeats and conceding a very late goal to draw with Arsenal last time out has them on the brink of the drop.
Wins are all-important for the Cottagers at this stage, but it doesn’t come much tougher than facing European semi-finalists who have an agenda of their own making three points vital.
