Fulham v Chelsea

Postby Hams » Fri Feb 28, 2014 6:09 pm

Fulham drew their last game 1-1 away at WBA but remain firmly rooted to the bottom of table.
This will be their new coach Felix Magath's first game in charge at home.

Current Premier League leaders Chelsea struggled to beat Everton 1-0 at Bridge in their last match.
They also managed to draw 1-1 away at Galatasaray during the week thanks to an early Torres goal.

Any comments or predictions for this West London Derby?

Did you know that The Blues have won 14 and lost just one of the 25 Premier League
meetings with their west London rivals, with their only defeat in this fixture coming at Craven Cottage in March 2006.

Really interesting to see if Magath can turn things around at Fulham, I'm sure Fulham fans would love nothing more than him announcing his tenure with a victory against Chelsea. His stock will rise dramatically if he can get them out of their current hole. One victory in the league in 2014 tells you the scale of the problem, grim times for the Cottagers.

Chelsea continue to win games in the efficient Mourinho style, top of the league they are a force to be reckoned with.

Chelsea have not beaten many teams with a goal fest this season, and I see another narrow victory on the cards. Fulham 1 Chelsea 2.

Hazard and Schurrle played brilliant together..

Didn't see the game, but apparently Chelsea were poor in the first half. Mourinho says he didn't deliver a half time team talk, he let the players sit in the changing room and mull over their performance on their own. I can't help but think I'd prefer that myself, as I'd like to punch the Portuguese maestro every time he opens his mouth!

As for Fulham, look on the bright side chaps your next season ticket will be cheaper and you'll get to go to exotic locations like Middlesbrough, Birmingham and Bolton.

It was a poor first half by Chelsea but Jose Mourinho's trick not to say anything
at half time seemed to work as they were a different side in the 2nd period and even though Shirley scored 3 Hazard was outstanding again.
