Leagues Tipped:

SlipsTips takes a look at the Bet Builder market ahead of Chelsea's London derby with Fulham on Saturday.

Chelsea vs Fulham (Saturday, 17:30)

Chelsea will be looking to cement their position in the top-four of the Premier League table when they entertain London rivals Fulham on Saturday evening.

The Blues have been a resurgent force under Thomas Tuchel, with the west Londoners losing just 2/22 matches since the German took the reins in January.

That marked improvement has put the Stamford Bridge side in pole position to bag a top-four berth, but the new Chelsea chief has also galvanised his sides' assault on both the Champions League and the FA Cup respectively.

Fulham, on the other hand, make the short trip across the city aiming to halt a five-game winless streak, a run of results that has stopped the Cottagers revival in its tracks.

The Blues are a general 1/2 to bank all three points on Saturday evening but I'm going to head to Bet 365's Bet Builder to get a bigger price.

If we combine Chelsea to win and over zero Fulham cards we can get some 4/5 (Bet 365) and that makes plenty of appeal.

Indeed, the tactically-astute Tuchel may rotate his squad given Champions League commitments, but the Blues boss has a wealth of talent at his disposal and I suspect the hosts will have too much firepower for a Fulham side who are beginning to look doomed to the drop.

The Cottagers performances have dipped at the wrong time, while Chelsea have lost only once during Tuchel's 14 Premier League games in charge.

What's more, Chelsea still have work to do to secure a top-four position in the Premier League table so I'm more than happy to side with the hosts during this all-London affair.

In order to push the price up to 4/5 (Bet 365), I'll throw in over zero Fulham cards – Scott Parker's side are averaging 1.79 cards per game this term – the second-highest tally in the division – and they have been cautioned in each of their last six top-flight road trips.

It's also worth noting that the above-mentioned combination has clicked in 14/16 Fulham league defeats this season – one of which was in the reserve fixture – and that only adds to the appeal of supporting the same formula at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.
