Chelsea boss Graham Potter has blamed Chelsea’s recent struggles to the club’s injury problems.
However, Fulham boss Marco Silva insists Chelsea still have a quality squad despite the injuries.
Fulham head into tonight’s game against Chelsea 7th in the table having won all three league games since action resumed after the World Cup.
The Blues, in contrast, have had just one win in eight league matches and are dealing with a severe injury crisis, but Silva still expects Chelsea to be a force to be reckoned with.
“Even with some injuries — and you know that we are not with our full squad as well —they are always Chelsea,” Silva said.
“And it is clear two seasons ago they won the Champions League, this season they spent more than £300million, we cannot talk about all these things. It is clear the high quality they have in their squad. For me there are no doubts about it.”
