As Gameweek 7 of the Premier League approaches, Chelsea is set to face Fulham in a highly anticipated London derby. Here are the predicted lineups for both teams, along with injury updates for key players.
Chelsea Predicted Lineup:
- Goalkeeper: Sanchez
- Defenders: Disasi, T. Silva, Colwill, Chilwell
- Midfielders: Gallagher, Caicedo, Enzo
- Forwards: Mudryk, Broja/ Sterling, Palmer
Chelsea is expected to field a strong lineup with Sanchez guarding the goal. The defensive quartet of Disasi, T. Silva, Colwill, and Chilwell will aim to provide a solid foundation at the back.
In midfield, Gallagher, Caicedo, and Enzo will look to control the midfield and create scoring opportunities. While up top, there different ways Poch could set up given Jackson’s absence. He could use Sterling as center forward or he could bring Broja in which is unlikely. If Sterling features as the center forward, we expect Palmer to come in and play from the right.
Fulham Predicted Lineup:
- Goalkeeper: Leno
- Defenders: Tete, Diop, Ream, Castagne
- Midfielders: Reed, J. Palhinha, Andreas
- Forwards: Willian, Vinícius, Wilson
Fulham is expected to field a competitive lineup with Leno as the goalkeeper.
The defensive unit of Tete, Diop, Ream, and Castagne will work to thwart Chelsea’s attacking threats.
In midfield, Reed, J. Palhinha and Andreas will aim to control the tempo of the game and create opportunities. In attack, Willian, Wilson and Vinícius will lead Fulham’s charge and look to capitalize on any scoring chances.
