Valentine’s Day special: Chelsea versus Fulham

It is going to be difficult for us to catch up with Manchester United.”
On the other hand, Fulham are playing exceptionally well and are unbeaten at home since the start of the year. Fulham will be hoping to win against victory-drought team Chelsea and will be counting on their in form striker Bobby men in their team, and all these players will be keen to perform against their old club.
