Chelsea XI vs Fulham: Confirmed Lineup, Team news, Injury Updates



Chelsea XI vs Fulham

Chelsea also remain without N’Golo Kante, Edouard Mendy, Reece James, Wesley Fofana and Armando Broja with a total of 10 players out of their west London derby match.

James is back out running on grass and Kante is doing individual training but they are not expected back this week with no precise timeframe given for their respective recoveries.

However, Aubameyang returned from a back injury that kept him out of the 4-0 FA Cup third-round defeat to Manchester City on Sunday and could be drafted in for his first start since the World Cup. Felix will be hoping for his first minutes off the bench, should the Premier League confirm his eligibility for the game.

The Blues will likely pick an experienced side this evening after winning just one of their last eight Premier League matches. The Blues are in 10th, 10 points off the top four places to qualify for the Champions League and three points behind their west London rivals in the Premier League table.

Predicted Chelsea XI (4-3-3): Kepa; Azpilicueta, Thiago Silva, Koulibaly, Cucurella; Kovacic, Jorginho, Mount; Ziyech, Aubameyang, Havertz.
