This afternoon, Chelsea make the short trip down the road to take on our near-neighbours, Fulham, in a West London derby.

With Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal drawing yesterday, a win is crucial today if the Blues are to get back among the group challenging for a top-four finish and a place in the financially lucrative Champions League.

This afternoon, Chelsea will come up against a Fulham side looking to impress their new manager, the third they’ve employed this season, with Scott Parker, who has played for both clubs, replacing the axed Claudio Ranieri in the Fulham hot-seat.

This season Fulham have been defensively woeful, and the travelling Chelsea support will be hoping that the Blues can take full advantage of that and get amongst the goals.

As is the norm, we’re running our Match Day Moments feature whereby we encourage you to leave your views, in our comment facility beneath this article on a variety of subjects including, but not limited to;

1 – The build-up to the West London derby.

2 – The starting eleven selected by Maurizio Sarri.

3 – The action as it happens at Craven Cottage.

4 – Your thoughts in the immediate period after the final whistle has sounded.

Here’s hoping we’re celebrating another win later this afternoon.

  • This team is so docile now. No single protest to the official either politely or otherwise throughout the game. A clear penalty not given, a foul on Christensen that could have led to fulham goal and so many others not given.
    Kepa man of the match for me.

  • We scored two good goals and conceded a sloppy one I never felt comfortable all I can say is three points but we can’t play like that against a better side we need to be a lot better for a top four challenge

  • Say what you will about “the incident, but Kepa is a damn fine keeper, for me. Much better than the one he replaced, at any time. Let’s hope he keeps his head on straight. This one could end up being one of the game’s finest.

  • Another crappy performance against a crappy team, team & club have lost the plot!! Europa League 2019 her we come again.

  • Kepa can become one of the best for sure. He deserved some sort of punishment & he got it, so incident closed. We need RLC & CHO starting . Hopefully Higuain will be in full flow as he gets fitter. We are very much in the dog fight for 3rd & 4th spots, and a CL spot may well influence good names to stay/arrive, so everything to play for …. fingers crossed.

  • On the contrary… No UCL, and a couple of big names leaving, could be the blessing in disguise for giving certain young players the time they need, to commit to club. In the long run, it would be a win. Truthfully, there’s no point in being in Europe right now. We’re not realistically equipped to compete – just as we haven’t been for quite some time. The club hasn’t invested in either players or manager with a multi-front strategy. (not with any real intent, anyway) I’d take the lumps of the transfer ban, and use it to good advantage.
