Fulham vs Chelsea LIVE: Latest score, goals and updates from Premier League fixture today


Lampard: Fulham derby always has an extra edge

Fulham welcome local rivals Chelsea to Craven Cottage after discovering form with five successive draws to boost their hopes of survival in the Premier League.

Fulham have been contending with schedule changes, with Parker bemoaning the situation, and his opposite number and former teammate is also upset with the authorities. “The Fulham game changing from Friday to Saturday at the front end didn’t make a difference to us too much,” said Lampard. “We had a week to prepare for it and I understand why Scott (Parker) would have had his feelings about it. I think it probably suited them to get that game done.”

“My feeling is that our time between Fulham and Leicester is even tighter and my biggest gripe as manager of Chelsea Football Club is that nobody came to help us when we played two games on the 26th and the 28th over Christmas, when it clearly could have been moved. So the schedule couldn’t be moved over Christmas but it can be moved now because we are fighting against Covid.”

The red card might get overturned on appeal as there wasn’t a great deal of contact but is was certainly rash, Robinson’s boots were highish and in real time it looked pretty reckless.

It’s almost a double blow for Fulham as Robinson was probably their biggest threat going forward as well. He’d been finding space on the left wing and was putting in some dangerous crosses. Scott Parker needs a re-think now.

Fulham 0 – 0 Chelsea

45+1 mins: Half time. Goalless at the break but the big story is that Fulham are down to 10-men. Chelsea need to liven up but they should dominate the ball in the second half. It’s going to be a long second 45 for Scott Parker’s Fulham.

44 mins: Red Card! Antonee Robinson is in trouble here. Cesar Azpilicueta and Robinson both go for the loose ball and Robinson jumps into the tackle with his studs showing. It’s harsh but it’s still dangerous play. Robinson is gone. VAR doesn’t save him either, Fulham down to 10-men.

42 mins: Massive chance for Fulham! Robinson gets clear on the left wing and puts in a deep cross to the far side of the box. Tete receives the ball and could shoot, but instead lays it up for Cavaleiro in the middle of the box. He’s wide open but miscues the shot and it goes wide.

39 mins: There’s not much happening out there. Fulham are winless in 18 Premier League London derbies with just two draws and 16 defeats. A 2-1 home victory versus West Ham United on New Year’s Day 2014 was their last win.

36 mins: Another corner for Chelsea results in another six-yard scramble. Thiago Silva wins the first ball and heads it down into the middle. Then it’s a game of pinball as Fulham try to clear and Chelsea try to score. The last touch comes off a Chelsea man and the ball rolls softly to Areola in goal.

33 mins: Reed slots the ball out to the left wing before it’s given to Adarabioyo. He attempts an aerial ball over the top but the pass goes out of play.

30 mins: Anguissa powers through the midfield and slots the ball into the box but Fulham don’t have the men forward and the attack breaks down.
