PREMIER LEAGUE LIVE: Kai Havertz opens the scoring inside the first 10 minutes following a superb assist from Mason Mount as Chelsea bid to strengthen grip on the top four against Fulham
Chelsea have a golden opportunity to cement their place in the top four with a win over struggling Fulham on Saturday – but Scott Parker’s side will be doing everything possible to pull off an upset.
The Blues will be wary of pressure from Liverpool, Tottenham and West Ham who are battling them for a spot in the Champions League next season – with the Hammers just three points behind and waiting for them to slip up.
Thomas Tuchel’s men are looking to finish the season strongly with a possible place in the Champions League final to come, and the German boss will not be underestimating Fulham as they cling on to Premier League survival.
The Whites remain seven points adrift of safety and time is running out for them to haul themselves clear of danger. Kick off at Stamford Bridge is at 17:30 BST.
