West London Derby: Fulham Compound Chelsea Woes
Chelsea’s wobbling performance this season continued as they lost the West London Derby 2-1 to Fulham.
It was their former player, Willian that scored the first goal in the first half, but the Blues restored parity early in the second half through Kalidou Koulibaly.
Just before the hour mark, Joao Felix was sent off on his Chelsea debut.
Felix, who only joined Chelsea on Wednesday in a £9.7m loan deal until the end of the season from Atletico Madrid, was shown a straight red card for a horrible lunge on defender Kenny Tete after 58 minutes.
Carlos Vinicius headed in a 72nd-minute winner for the home side. This victory took Fulham above Liverpool to sixth while Chelsea languish on 10th position.
