Chelsea boss Frank Lampard is under pressure after a poor run of form in recent weeks.
The Blues’ last six Premier League games have resulted in one win, one draw and four defeats.
This run has left Chelsea ninth in the table, six points off the top four.
Opponents Fulham have been on a very consistent run; their form guide for the last five matches reads DDDDD.
That includes a 1-1 draw at Tottenham Hotspur on Wednesday night, despite only being told they were playing by Premier League bosses on Monday morning.
A win for Scott Parker’s side could see them climb out of the bottom three.
Tuesday follow up Saturday’s west London derby with a tricky visit to Leicester on Tuesday night, while Fulham host Manchester United on Wednesday evening.
What time is Fulham vs Chelsea?
The west London derby is the fourth of five top-flight fixtures being played on Saturday.
The action will start at Craven Cottage at 5.30pm, not long after the final whistle sounds on the other side of the capital where West Ham are playing Burnley, and at Leeds vs Brighton at Elland Road.
