Blues pass Fulham test

Published Add your comment

Chelsea strolled to a 3-1 win over west London rivals Fulham to keep-up the pressure on second-placed Liverpool.

Goals from Nicolas Anelka, Florent Malouda and Didier Drogba helped Guus Hiddink's side sharpen their attacking capabilities ahead of Wednesday's Champions League semi-final, second leg against Barcelona.

Anelka put Chelsea ahead inside 50 seconds but Erik Nevland levelled for Fulham four minutes later. Malouda restored Chelsea's lead in the 10th minute and Drogba ended the scoring with a third in the second half.
