Clint Dempsey's late goal earned Fulham a deserved point from a 1-1 west London derby against Chelsea.

The United States international rose highest to nod home Damien Duff's corner in the 82nd minute when defeat seemed to be on the cards.

Fulham dominated first-half proceedings at Craven Cottage but went in at the break behind after Frank Lampard's controversial 45th-minute penalty. The midfielder's 150th Premier League goal looked to have given interim manager Roberto Di Matteo his ninth win at the helm before Dempsey 22nd goal of the season in all competitions changed the game's complexion.
