Comments:

League position: 18th Fulham failed in their attempt to complete a run of six consecutive games without defeat in the Premier League for the first time since September 2010. Had this game been drawn, the Whites would have become the first team to draw six consecutive games in the Premier League since Manchester City in November 2009. They had now conceded four goals in their last seven games in all competitions. Fulham named only eight of a possible nine substitutes.

Comments:

League position: 7th Chelsea had now scored 800 goals in their 547 away games in the Premier League (conceded 621). The Blues avoided losing four consecutive away games in the Premier League for the first time since December 2000. They had now scored one goal in each of five of their last six games in the Premier League.
