Chelsea vs Fulham Betting Odds:
That Thomas Tuchel could be disappointed about a 1-1 draw away to Real Madrid says a lot about how far Chelsea have come in such a short time under his management.
The Blues outplayed Real Madrid for most of the first half and should have had more than one goal to show for their efforts.
As it is, a draw and an away goal sets the return leg at Stamford Bridge up nicely but Tuchel will remind his players that they could very quickly suffer a knock to their morale if they are even a little bit off their game against Fulham.
Scott Parker’s Cottagers have probably played well enough to have retained their Premier League status but far too often they’ve failed to see their matches out.
Fulham will come out fighting and could well have some early success but Chelsea’s extra quality is sure to tell so it could be worth chancing a bet on Chelsea to win from behind at 10/1 with SportNation.

The one thing that could protect Chelsea from a slow start is the number of players who Tuchel can bring into his starting XI.
Tuchel started the same team against Real Madrid that took to the pitch against West Ham just a few days earlier so he is sure to rotate with a number of players keen to stake their case to feature more often.
Tammy Abraham is especially keen to start having seen his chances to impress very limited even as Timo Werner continues to struggle in front of goal.
The England striker may have to settle for a substitute appearance on Saturday but Abraham can still impress by scoring anytime at 18/5 with 888sport.
