Chelsea vs Fulham 2013: Team news and Predicted line-ups

The last week has been very turbulent to say the least, but Mourinho believes that nothing is lost yet. It is still early days in the season and Chelsea have not lost ground on rivals like Manchester United and Liverpool. Three points against Fulham at home has never been more important.

Mourinho says that he has a fully fit squad once again. Perhaps, it is time started thinking about using this strength rather than relying on the same players over and over again.

Fulham have several injury problems, which could be a good thing for Chelsea. Bryan Ruiz and Aaron Hughes are some of the names that are unlikely to be available for the match, while star striker Dimitar Berbatov also remains a major doubt. Fulham do have a consistent goalscorer in the form of Darren Bent.
