Chelsea v Fulham live stream, Sky Sports, Saturday 1 May, 5.30pm BST
Chelsea will take another big step towards Champions League qualification if they beat local rivals Fulham on Saturday.
Thomas Tuchel’s side may be in an excellent position to reach the final of Europe’s foremost competition, but their place in next season’s edition is far from guaranteed. A 1-1 draw with Real Madrid on Tuesday was a good result away from home, even though Chelsea might have been a little disappointed not to have emerged victorious in the Spanish capital. The Blues are now favourites to advance to the final, where they could meet domestic rivals Manchester City.
But whereas City can afford to put their feet up in the Premier League - it is only a matter of time before they are crowned champions - Chelsea are locked in a battle for the top four. A 1-0 win against West Ham last weekend could prove to be pivotal, with Tuchel’s side now four points clear of the chasing pack. A failure to beat Fulham would see that margin reduced, though, and no one at Stamford Bridge will be celebrating Champions League qualification just yet.

Saturday’s showdown between these two west London sides is a must-win for Fulham. The Cottagers are seven points adrift of safety with five games remaining, and a failure to beat Chelsea would in effect condemn them to the drop - barring what would arguably be the most miraculous escape act in Premier League history.
Mateo Kovacic could return for the home team, but Tuchel may opt to begin with the Croatian on the bench if he intends to use him against Real Madrid on Wednesday. The Chelsea boss has no other injury concerns.
Fulham will have to make do without Tom Cairney, Terence Kongolo and Marek Rodak, but Kenny Tete could be involved if he tests negative for Covid-19.
Kick-off is at 5.30pm BST and the game is being shown on Sky Sports Premier League and Sky Sports Main Event. See below for watching details where you are.

Use a VPN to watch a Chelsea v Fulham live stream from outside your country
If you’re on holiday or just simply out of the country, your domestic on-demand services won’t work – the broadcaster knows exactly where you are from your IP address. Your access to the game will be automatically blocked, which is annoying if you’ve paid a subscription fee and don't want to use an illegal, buffering stream that makes you miss another Jose Mourinho tantrum. And that's where we recommend ExpressVPN (more on which below).
All you need to do is get a Virtual Private Network (VPN) to get beyond such aggravations (assuming it complies with your broadcaster’s T&Cs). A VPN creates a private connection between your device and the internet, meaning suppliers can’t work out where you are and what you’re doing. The info going to and from is entirely encrypted.
There are plenty of options out there, including:
ExpressVPN including a 30-day, money-back guarantee
FourFourTwo’s brainy office mates TechRadar love its super speedy connections, trustworthy security and the fact it works with Android, Apple, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, PS4 and loads more. You also get a money-back guarantee, 24/7 support and it's currently available for a knockdown price. Go get it!
NordVPN with quality mobile and desktop apps
A cheaper option and almost ExpressVPN's equal when it comes to quality, too. A single subscription covers six connections, so you can use it on mobile, laptop, streaming devices and more, all at the same time.
Surfshark offers a great VPN at a fraction of the price
It's clear to see why Surfshark is top of TechRadar's best cheap VPN table – it combines an excellent product with bargain pricing, starting at £2/$2.50 a month!
