Why you should back Chelsea
The Blues have been excellent at home this season. In nine Premier League matches at Stamford Bridge, Chelsea have five wins, two draws and two defeats. The two losses came to the top two teams in the table -- Arsenal and Manchester City. On Friday, the Blues face a Fulham side that has lost five of 10 road matches this season.
In addition, Chelsea have a proven goal scorer in Kai Havertz. The 23-year-old forward from Germany leads the team and ranks 21st in the league in goals, with five. He scored the Blues' last Premier League goal, in the team's 1-0 victory over Crystal Palace on Jan. 15.
Why you should back Fulham
The Cottagers enter Friday's match in solid form. Fulham have won the most matches (four) and conceded the third fewest goals (three) since the Premier League resumed play after the World Cup. That includes a 2-1 victory over Chelsea on Jan. 12.
In addition, the Cottagers have been strong in front of goal this season. In fact, Fulham have scored in 17 out of 21 matches, including eight of 10 away games. That bodes well against a Chelsea side that has conceded in six out of nine home matches.
