The Premier League is returning to play this weekend with a new set of games. On Saturday, Fulham takes on Mauricio Pochettino’s Chelsea team at Stamford Bridge in a crucial match.
Fulham’s EFL Cup semi-final matchup against Liverpool on Wednesday night was preceded by their advancement to the FA Cup 4th round. Having defeated Rotherham United 1-0 during the FA Cup competition, victory by the identical score was momentarily expected against Liverpool. However, halfway through the second half, Liverpool finally tied the score, before finally beating Fulham 2-1 thanks to a strike form Cody Gakpo. In their 2023 season finale, the 13th-placed Cottagers defeated Arsenal with justifiable victory. However, since defeating Everton on the first weekend of the season, they have lost all 4 of their away games in the top flight, conceding at least 3 goals each time. In Chelsea’s 2-0 victory at Craven Cottage in October, strikes from Mykhaylo Mudryk and Armando Broja were crucial, and it represents 45 years since Chelsea were defeated at home by Fulham.
After suffering a humiliating 1-0 defeat to Middlesbrough, the Blues will be back at Stamford Bridge to face the furious supporters. The cards were heavily stacked against Michael Carrick’s team in the EFL Cup, but on Tuesday night, the highly-rated Hayden Hackney helped Middlesbrough to an unforgettable victory, and the former Manchester United player unexpectedly triumphed against the West London giants once more. It remains to be seen if Middlesbrough can strike again at Stamford Bridge on January 23rd, but Pochettino’s top objective right now is a 3rd straight Premier League victory before Chelsea can start dreaming of revenge and a possible trip to Wembley. Even though Chelsea defeated Luton Town and Crystal Palace in consecutive games, winning by a single goal each time, to cap off a forgettable 2023, they are unable to break into the single digits and are currently ranked 10th in the standings, 3 points behind Brighton & Hove Albion in 7th.
