Mexican defender Carlos Salcido will miss Fulham's Barclays Premier League visit to west London rivals Chelsea.

Salcido is sidelined for three weeks with ankle ligament damage suffered in the 1-1 draw against Aston Villa at the weekend.

Fulham will also be missing defender Chris Baird who has suffered a thigh tear and is likely to be out for 10 days.

However, he could return for the match against Manchester City.
