Fulham face a trip to Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Saturday afternoon, needing to turn around their fortunes at the ground. The Cottagers will be hoping to improve upon a record which has seen them taste defeat on 17 occasions, and draw 13, from the 32 games played.
The most recent encounter between these two sides was less than a year ago, in December 2006, where the two teams cancelled each other out in an enthralling 2 - 2 draw in a Premiership match.
