Fulham vs Chelsea: Confirmed team news, kick-off time, injury updates and starting XI predicted

Fulham vs Chelsea match will be another opportunity for Frank Lampard to prove to his employer that he is still much ready to continue his project at the Stamford Bridge.

It is believed that any one who starts for Chelsea on Saturday will be ready to the job against Fulham and get the maximum point away from home.

Chelsea are currently ninth on the log while Manchester United are currently the table topper.

The match between Fulham and Chelsea will kick-off by 18:30 on Saturday.

Aleksandar Mitrovic could return for Fulham’s match with Chelsea on Saturday.

The striker missed Wednesday’s draw at Tottenham after tweaking a muscle during Saturday’s FA Cup win over QPR.

Mitrovic, however, has since trained and could return to the squad – but midfielders Tom Cairney and Mario Lemina are still out.

“Mitrovic is possible to be there for the weekend,” said Parker.

“He trained today – lightly – and we will see how he pulls through tomorrow. Then the other two boys (Cairney and Lemina) are just not available at the moment. Tom has got an issue with his knee.”

Saturday’s trip to Chelsea will be Fulham’s second match in four days and it may mean Scott Parker has to make some changes.

Ruben Loftus-Cheek cannot play as he is on loan from Chelsea and Ademola Lookman – who impressed off the bench against Spurs – is one player pushing for a start.

Fulham predicted XI (3-5-2): Areola; Aina, Andersen, Adarabioyo; Tete, Reid, Reed, Zambo, Robinson; Cavaleiro, Lookman
