Gotta be an easy beating against these. They are pretty poor and we could do with a comfortable win. 3-0 hoping!

Cech

Ivanovic Cahill Terry Azpi

Matic Ramires

With this game on Saturday it doesn't give us much rest or preparation time. Oscar should be ready to go with schurrle playing tonight. Won't be an easy game, but we could do to score more then 1 goal to get confidence sky high again.

It'll be anything but easy. Probably a harder game than tonight. London derby means form goes out of the window. And it's their first home game with a new manager in charge. Fucking perfect. Means they'll be right up for it.

Indeed. Never easy against these lots. Always seem to turn up against us even when they look absolutely average and the games are always tight and dull. When we win, it's usually by 1 goal or if it not, it's a drab draw.

Oh shit!!!! Never easy against them plus adda new manager and relegation battle to it and we have DROPPED Points. We will need to match their energy, their will and the passion fulham normally bring to a derby.

Matic rambo

HAZARD oscar schurrle

Torres/etoo.

Probably Torres to start as he has been among thw goals spexially away from the bridge.

1-1.

Performance doesn't matter at this stage! Win at all costs! City not playing and Arseanal away to Stoke who they always struggle against, potentially a decent weekend for us.

I think Hazard needs a rest though i really do. Last couple of games he has been very very quiet.

I agree with you here, this is the perfect time to rest Hazard, There are tough games coming up later where he is needed. But would it be so awful to let Salah start this match instead of schurrle?

The game at Stamford Bridge vs Fulham was our worst PL performance off the season yet we still won 2 0 and never looked troubled apart from one moment when Cahill played Bent onside.

This Fulham team are awful, the only way we will drop points is through utter complacency.

Not sure what to expect with the new manager. Regardless, I don't see them doing anything that would trouble us. If we drop points it'll be due to wastefulness in front of goal, no other way. But I imagine we'd at least get 1 and grab 3 points.

Don't over-estimate the trip to Turkey & a mid-week match. We will have some tired legs @ Craven Cottage. Also it's a West London Derby. I expect fulcrap to bring their 'A' Game. You know these fools would love to KO from top of the table. Would be an awesome thing that they can take to the championship w/ them. I am worried about this match. Look at wait happened in Spain last week. UCL Hangover worked over Barca & Atletico

Exactly. Dropping points here with a West Brom esque display will be typical Chelsea, though Matic just being the world-classplayer he is and also being fresh will give us a big boost.

Lack of goals is really starting to get concerning, in our last 10 games we have only scored 13 goals and we have had West Ham, West Brom, Hull City, stoke and newcastle in some of those games. I dont expect a goal feast every weekend but this lack of goals might be the difference between the league title comin to stamford bridge and not. Lets hope Torres gets into a bit of form because we need our strikers to start firing, also the midfield shld score more goals, they are not providing enough goals considering they are not creating much. Last season over 50 of our goals came from the midfield. This season other than Hazard no one else has been up to scratch. As for Saturday lets hope that we get a 2-3 goal lead early on and then sit back not sit back on a 1-0 lead its just too vulnerable.

The question is who do you pair up with Matic? Mikel, Ramires orLuiz? I would also suggest to playing Salah, and lighten Willian's week. Salah dizzied Ashley Cole when he faced us, Fulham don't have a LB to deal with any kind of danger. Perfect game for Mo to stretch out his legs to be honest.
