Chelsea’s dismal form continued as they suffered a 2-1 defeat to Fulham in the Premier League at Craven Cottage on Thursday evening. Willian opened the scoring for the Blues, but his strike was cancelled out by Kalidou Koulibaly’s equalizer.
However, Chelsea’s hopes of earning a point were dashed when debutant Joao Felix was sent off for a dangerous tackle on Kenny Tete.
Carlos Vinicius then headed home the winner for the hosts, leaving Chelsea in tenth place in the league table. The pressure is mounting on head coach Graham Potter, who only took over in September.
Potter acknowledged the team’s struggles, saying, “We’re disappointed with the goal. That is what has cost us. Really disappointed to lose.” Chelsea will look to bounce back in their next match against Crystal Palace at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.
