Chelsea return to Premier League action when they face Fulham after two weeks without a fixture.

Graham Potter’s side will play for the first time since their 0-0 draw away to Liverpool at Anfield on January 21, which followed a 1-0 home win against Crystal Palace the week before to end a run of three straight defeats in all competitions and their first win of 2023.

Since then, Chelsea have been on the training pitches at Cobham improving, as well as having multiple team bonding sessions to increase the togetherness and connections within the squad.

They have also welcomed two new signings into the group, Noni Madueke and Enzo Fernandez, before the January window closed.

Chelsea face a Fulham side who beat them 2-1 last month at Craven Cottage, with the Blues reduced to 10 men after Joao Felix was sent off on debut and former winger Willian scored the game’s opener.

Fulham sit three places above Chelsea in 7th but a win for Potter’s will see them leapfrog their west London counterparts.

But the Chelsea head coach isn’t taking the London derby lighty, praising their opponents: “They’ve had a fantastic season. Credit to the staff, Marco and players. They are there on merit, not luck.

“We’re looking forward to the game, the memory of defeat is still there. We felt that, it was a low point for us.”

Here is all the information for the league encounter:

Chelsea will welcome back Reece James, Ben Chilwell, Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Raheem Sterling, however the quartet won’t be available to play the full 90 minutes.

Meanwhile, Mateo Kovacic, Denis Zakaria, N’Golo Kante, Christian Pulisic and Armando Broja are still absent, as is Wesley Fofana who has returned to training but not yet ready to return.

“Wesley has been training partly with the team and he will be stepping it up next week,” said Potter pre-match.

Joao Felix is serving the final match of his three-game suspension, while Mykhailo Mudryk will hope to make his full debut at Stamford Bridge. New signing Noni Madueke is in contention for his debut, while it remains unclear if Enzo Fernandez will be available having not yet received his work permit.
