Fulham vs Chelsea

Chelsea will return to Premier League action this coming weekend.

The Blues had of course been in pretty dire form of late, but were able to pick up a much-needed win over lower-league outfit Morecambe in the FA Cup at the weekend.

Whilst their drubbing of Morecambe should hand the Londoners some confidence, though, they really need to turn their Premier League form around as soon as possible.

Chelsea are currently all the way down in 9th spot in the English top-flight, a staggering 10 points adrift of table-topping Manchester United, having picked up just one win from their last four outings

Fulham, though, on paper at least, should provide Frank Lampard’s men with a good chance of getting back on track.

Scott Parker’s side have won just two league games all season, and, unlike Chelsea, are in action on Wednesday evening, meaning they should be a lot more fatigued than the Blues this weekend.

Reece James & Andreas Christensen spotted in training

Ahead of their meeting with the Cottagers, meanwhile, Chelsea also appear to have been handed a boost on the personnel front.

Reece James has enjoyed a solid season to date, building a promising partnership with Hakim Ziyech on Chelsea’s right flank.

However, the stopper was recently dealt an injury blow, and has missed his side’s last two league outings as a result.

Ahead of Fulham, though, James has been spotted back in first-team training.

Chelsea posted a snippet of their latest session on Tuesday, and both James and Andreas Christensen, who has also been dealing with fitness issues of late, could be seen taking part:
