Footymad preview History of the Fulham v Chelsea fixture

Fulham prepare to entertain Chelsea at Craven Cottage on Saturday afternoon, looking to improve on a dire past record against their opponents. It does not make pleasant reading, winning just 5 of the 34 games played, and losing 20.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Craven Cottage was less than a year ago, in April 2012, where the two sides shared the spoils courtesy of a 1-1 final scoreline in a Premier League match.
