Fulham vs. Chelsea: Lineups & Game Thread

Welcome to the 78th edition of the West London "Derby". The pride of SW6 is at stake! More importantly, Chelsea's Champions League future is at stake.

Clive Mason

Chelsea haven't lost to Fulham in 15 matches, since 2006, and a random Louis Boa Morte goal. Now is not the time to break this streak.

Worryingly, Chelsea have only one win in the last four visits to Craven Cottage. Now is not the time to continue this hapless streak.

Three points or bust!


Fulham starting lineup (4-4-2):
Mark Schwarzer | John Arne Riise, Brede Hangeland, Philippe Senderos, Sascha Riether | Urby Emanuelson, Giorgos Karagounis, Eyong Enoh, Bryan Ruiz | Dimitar Berbatov, Mladen Petric

Substitutes from: Neil Etheridge, Kieran Richardson, Aaron Hughes, Stanislav Manolev, Emmanuel Frimpong, Kerim Frei, Hugo Rodallega

Chelsea starting lineup (4-2-3-1):
Petr Cech | Ryan Bertrand, John Terry, David Luiz, Branislav Ivanovic | Frank Lampard, Ramires | Eden Hazard, Juan Mata, Victor Moses | Fernando Torres

Substitues from: Ross Turnbull, Oscar, John Obi Mikel, Cesar Azpilicueta, Yossi Benayoun, Nathan Ake, Demba Ba


So Frank Lampard makes his 600th Chelsea appearance and David Luiz makes his 100th. Congratulations to both!

Now, about those three points...
