Kai Havertz’s double saw Chelsea cruise to victory in Saturday evening’s west London derby, leaving Fulham on the brink of relegation.
The German opened the scoring after brilliant play from Mason Mount early on and then sealed a 2-0 win with his second soon after the restart.
Fulham had gone into the weekend already needing a remarkable end to the season to survive and their task got harder ahead of kick-off with news of Brighton’s win over Leeds earlier in the day.
