3′ It looks like Havertz might be playing in the central role up top for Chelsea today, with Ziyech out to the right and Werner to the left. A very attacking line-up for the hosts.

The teams are out on the pitch and kick-off is just a few minutes away, stay tuned for all the match action!

Meanwhile Scott Parker sticks with the same starting XI that drew with Arsenal last weekend, with Maja and Cavaleiro leading the line up front and Reid and Lookman providing the width.

Thomas Tuchel has made four changes to his side, perhaps resting a few ahead of the Champions League tie in midweek. Rudiger, Azpilicueta, Jorginho and Pulisic drop out of the side and they have been replaced by Zouma, James, Gilmour and Ziyech.

FULHAM SUBS: Marek Radak, Kenny Tete, Michael Hector, Dennis Odoi, Aleksandar Mitrovic, Tim Ream, Joe Bryan, Josh Onomah, Fabio Carvalho.

FULHAM (4-4-2): Alphonse Areola, Ola Aina, Joachim Andersen, Tosin Adarabioyo, Antonee Robinson; Bobby Decordova-Reid, Mario Lemina, Andre-Frank Anguissa, Ademola Lookman; Ivan Cavaleiro, Josh Maja.

CHELSEA SUBS: Kepa Arrizabalaga, Marcos Alonso, Cesar Azpilicueta, Jorginho, N’Golo Kante, Faustino Anjorin, Callum Hudson-Odoi, Christian Pulisic, Tammy Abraham.

CHELSEA (3-4-2-1): Edouard Mendy; Andreas Christensen, Thiago Silva, Kurt Zouma; Reece James, Billy Gilmour, Mason Mount, Ben Chilwell; Hakim Ziyech, Kai Havertz; Timo Werner.

Meanwhile Fulham are at the opposite end of the table and are in a huge battle to stay up. They are currently 10 points adrift, following Brighton’s earlier victory over Leeds and there are now only four games left to play, so time is running out for Scott Parker’s side.

Chelsea could tighten their grip on fourth spot with a win today, after beating fifth-placed West Ham last weekend. The Blues are unbeaten in their last four games in all competitions, including a 1-1 draw with Real Madrid in the Champions League semi-finals in midweek.
