Fulham prepare to entertain Chelsea at Craven Cottage on Sunday afternoon, looking to improve on a dire past record against their opponents. It does not make pleasant reading, winning just 7 of the 33 games played, and losing 20.
The most recent encounter between these two sides at Craven Cottage was less than a year ago, in January 2008, with Chelsea inflicting a narrow 1-2 defeat upon the Cottagers in a Premier League match.
