The English Premier League returns tomorrow with the match between Chelsea VS Fulham FC. Chelsea have been very busy this transfer window, having spent the highest amount around Europe.

The London side club has already signed Argentine World Cup winner Enzo Fernandez with a record-breaking transfer fee. The Chelsea team also signed Joao Felix and Mykhailo Mudryk at a notable cost.

Chelsea FC have been struggling since the start of the season. They are in the 10th place in the league table after playing 20 matches. But Tod Boehly, the new owner of Chelsea, has been backing the manager. As a result, this club spent the most in this transfer window. Hopefully, their fortune will turn around soon.

Stats and Facts

Three weeks ago, Fulham FC sealed a stunning victory over Chelsea. They defeated the London side club by a 2-1 margin, where Joao Felix was sent off in his debut match for the Blues. Moreover, Chelsea’s recent form is not going well. They won just two of their last 11 games in all competitions. Due to their poor performance, Graham Potter was at risk of being sacked. However, a victory against Crystal Palace and a goalless draw against Liverpool released the pressure from him.
