Fulham v Chelsea: Can Fulham pile misery on the Blues?


Bookmark and Share

Chelsea entered the season as champions of Europe. At the way things are going they may not even be in Europe next season. Manchester City ended their FA Cup hopes on Sunday, Arsenal start the day in third place and tonight Fulham could deliver their top four hopes a hammer blow. 

The last five meetings with Fulham have all ended in stalemate and this could well go the same way. Martin Jol's men have lost only once at home during 2013 - Manchester United - and would love to put Rafa Benitez under more pressure at the Bridge.

This will be Chelsea's 60th game of the campaign. They have the players but do they have the legs to last another eight, possibly nine, games to win the Europa League and secure a place in the top four? They have some huge games coming up, including Liverpool at the weekend, Manchester United, Everton and Spurs.

Fulham have only ever beaten Chelsea seven times in league meetings. They will believe it's high time they made it number eight and Berbatov could well be the man who delivers that goal, but can Fulham really overcome the champions of Europe?
