Chelsea vs Fulham: Confirmed team news for Premier League Summer Series pre-season clash



Chelsea face Fulham in the fourth game of their 2023 pre-season tour of the United States and the team news is in from FedExField.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side have won two and drawn one of their three games so far in America as their tour gradually comes to an end ahead of the 2023/24 campaign.

Chelsea opened their tour with a 5-0 win over Wrexham, before claiming a 4-3 victory against Brighton & Hove Albion and drawing 1-1 to Newcastle United in the Premier League Summer Series.

A win for Chelsea over their west London counterparts will give them a chance of winning the Summer Series tournament, an opportunity for Pochettino to win his first piece of unofficial silverware at the club.

The friendly will get underway at 7.45pm BST time, 2.45pm local time, and will be available to watch live on Sky Sports and Peacock.
