How to watch Fulham vs Chelsea: Is the game on TV in the UK?

Is Fulham vs Chelsea on TV? There’s a rare Thursday night game in the Premier League. Here’s how to watch the game on TV and online and listen for free.

If you told Fulham fans they’d go into a Premier League game with Chelsea in January above their west London rivals, they’d have laughed in your face.

However, half way through the season, the Cottagers have defied all expectations and currently sit 7th in the Premier League table, looking upwards at the European places.

Chelsea’s season has been disastrous thus far. New owner Todd Boehly began the campaign by firing Thomas Tuchel and his replacement Graham Potter has struggled to adapt to life at a Big Six club.

The Blues enter tonight’s game at Fulham in 10th place in the table with only 7 wins from 17 games. They’re 10 points behind the Champions League places and 19 points behind Arsenal at the summit.

You get the sense Potter needs to turn things around quickly if he is to survive his first season at Chelsea and a win tonight would certainly put a rosier spin on the campaign heading into the busiest time of the year.

All in all, it’s set up to be an intriguing London derby on a rainy Thursday night in the capital. Here’s how to watch Fulham vs Chelsea on the best TV, best smartphone or best laptop you have in the house.
