Chelsea 1-0 Fulham: Essien On Target As Blues Maintain Top Spot In Derby Win

Carlo Ancelotti and the Chelsea faithful may have been expecting a glut of goals but a win is a win and it still yields three points and keeps them ahead of Manchester United at the top of the table.

If form was anything like accurate this game should have been a regulation home win for Chelsea, but Fulham proved a stubborn obstacle.

The first moments of the game went for Chelsea but the killer touch seemed to be lacking for The Blues.

Clearly, Mark Hughes setup his team to frustrate their local rivals and without an away win in 23 games, The Cottagers were unlikely to spring any kind of surprise.

The story is too old to be commented.

Could have been so much more. Chelsea is strong, but they are also champions in waisting BIG chances. A bit of bad luck, Fulham could score close to full time, but a good goalie saved it. I am really not sure that Chelsea will stay on top.
