At the Craven Cottage stadium in London, the next metropolitan derby will begin as part of the 29th round of the Premier League, in which Fulham will host Chelsea. The absolutely logical favorite in the pair are the "aristocrats." Despite the existing problems, Sarri continues to lead Chelsea, moreover, in the last round the “blue” achieved the most important victory over Tottenham, which showed that the team continues to fight for getting into the top-4. But Fulham is in big trouble, it is very likely that the “summer residents” still leave the elite at the end of the championship.
Before the 29th round of the Premier League, Fulham is on the 19th position in the standings, with 17 points in assets and a lag behind the salutary, 17th position in 10 points. Considering that until the end of the championship there are still 10 rounds, the “summer residents” have a chance to preserve registration in the elite, however, it is hard to believe that the Ranieri team will be able to create this miracle. The current tone of "summer residents" is weak, in the last five matches Fulham lost four times with one victory.
The recent League Cup final and the Kep-Sarri conflict have divided Chelsea fans into two camps. Some believe that Sarri is not guilty and there was a usual misunderstanding, the second argue that the Italian showed a weakness for which he had no right and a specialist must be dismissed. In any case, after defeat in a penalty shootout from Manchester City, Chelsea in its field took and beat Tottenham with a score 2: 0. Essentially after this victory, the tournament situation for the “blue” has not changed, the “aristocrats”, as they were, remained in sixth place. However, in terms of psychology, Victoria over the “Spurs” is of great importance for future guests.
Fulham, after losing to Southampton in the last round, has already started to say goodbye to the Premier League. Play a 10-point handicap for 10 rounds at this level of the game is unrealistic. In turn, after the victory over Tottenham, Chelsea will do everything in the power of this team for an exit victoria over an outsider.
