Chelsea welcome local rivals Fulham to Stamford Bridge in the Premier League on Saturday evening looking for another vital three points in the race for Champions League qualification for next season.

The Blues will be keen to capitalise on a positive performance in Madrid, where they earned a 1-1 draw against Real Madrid in the first leg of the Champions League.

Meanwhile Fulham are on the brink of relegation, and nothing less than a win can be useful for Scott Parker's men.
