José Mourinho's Chelsea homecoming hasn't gone quite according to plan, with the returning manager having not witnessed his team pick up a competitive win in a month. The latest setback was a shock defeat to Basel in their opening Champions League group stage game, on the back of a loss to Everton in the league.
They'll look to bounce back with a win against Fulham this weekend, with their West London rivals having also failed convinced so far. Martin Jol's side haven't won since a narrow victory over Sunderland in their opening game of the season, and are languishing just a point above the relegation places for now.
Their task of taking points away at Stamford Bridge is made even harder by Chelsea's lack of injury concerns. In contrast, Jol will definitely have to do without Maarten Stekelenburg, Bryan Ruiz, Matthew Briggs and Aaron Hughes, though Dimitar Berbatov is expected to be fit enough to make Fulham's starting XI.
