CHE vs FUL: Chelsea Team News, Possible Lineup, And Kickoff Time For Today's PL London Derby Clash

Chelsea will be seeking to keep their top-four finish aspirations alive when they welcome Fulham to Stamford Bridge later today in the ongoing English Premier League.

The Mauricio Pochettino-led Blues will be going into the much anticipated London Derby showdown off the back of their hard-fought 3-2 win over Luton Town in their last outing, and they will be looking for another win over Fulham in a bid to improve their stand in the league standings.

Team News:

In a setback for Chelsea, Africa Cup of Nations representative Nicolas Jackson joins a list of sidelined players this weekend. Wesley Fofana, Marc Cucurella, Robert Sanchez, Trevoh Chalobah, Lesley Ugochukwu, Reece James, and Romeo Lavia are also set to miss the action due to various injuries.

Adding to the Blues' woes, Christopher Nkunku is unavailable due to a fresh hip concern. However, Ben Chilwell, Carney Chukwuemeka, and Benoit Badiashile have returned to full training, with Chilwell and Badiashile expected to feature in the upcoming match.

Manager Pochettino, who chose not to deploy Armando Broja at the attack's tip in the previous game, clarified it was a workload management decision. It wouldn't be surprising to see Broja back in the starting XI for the upcoming match.

Chelsea's possible starting lineup vs Fulham:

Petrovic; Gusto, Disasi, Silva, Colwill; Gallagher, Fernandez; Sterling, Palmer, Mudryk; Broja.

Kickoff Time:

The English Premier League game will commence at exactly 1:30 PM (Nigerian Time) today in London.
