Chelsea vs Fulham Preview Games and History
The most recent Chelsea vs Fulham was played on 01 – 05 – 21, also at Stamford Bridge. It would result in a comfortable victory for the Blues already in the first half, and they did not need to fight it out against the Cottagers in the last 45′ minutes. The ball was distributed almost equally from one side of the pitch to the other, with the visitors controlling 52% of the ball, while the home side dominated the remaining 48%.
The teams were similar in the execution of their passes, with both teams hitting 85% of their combinations. But Chelsea made this a game of their own, managing to reach their opponents’ gates on 5 occasions, conceding 2 goals. While Fulham shot at the goal on three occasions and failed to get any positive result.
The first goal was scored in the 10th minute of the match with an assist from Mount to striker Kai Hevertz, who first time shot the ball between the posts. From then on the match remained the same, quite slow with Chelsea managing to hold on despite the positive possession for Fulham.
On the return leg the goal was soon to come, once again Kai Hevertz put the ball into the opponent’s net, this time from a first-time pass from Timo Werner. Chelsea vs Fulham was 2 – 0 at the start of the second half. A result that was enough for the Blues, who were content, only to disturb the Cottagers’ moves so that they could not hurt them. This was the end of the match.
