Chelsea won their first Premier League game since August with a 2-0 London derby victory at Craven Cottage on Monday night.
The evening’s action saw special goals on a special occasion for Mauricio Pochettino’s side, as Chelsea picked up their 150th London derby victory in the Premier League.
It may have taken 21 games to do it, but Mykhailo Mudryk finally ended his goal drought for the Blues, netting for the first time to put them in front after just 18 minutes.
The Ukraine international coolly slotted home with his left foot and a minute later, there would be another highly anticipated goalshooter on the scoresheet.
After spending 324 days recovering from injury, Armando Broja made the most of his start to double the advantage — sending his side into half time with a comfortable lead.
The possession was edged by Fulham, but the hosts just could not match up to their neighbours, as the Blues brought an end to their run of three consecutive league defeats.
This second win of the campaign will be exactly what Pochettino and those of a Chelsea persuasion would have liked, as they look ahead to renewed fortune in the blue half of London.
Chelsea next take on Burnley at Turf Moore on Saturday while Fulham host Sheffield United.
