Chelsea entertained Fulham at Craven Cottage earlier tonight as they hoped to grind out a good result at home in the Premier League. The Blues were solid in the first half and were held to a scoreless draw at the half-time break.
Graham Potter’s men pushed on in search of the winning goal in the second 45 minutes but ended up being frustrated as the contest finished 0-0 with the two London teams sharing the points in the derby.
