Match Report: Chelsea 0-0 Fulham

In the end, it was a match that flattered to deceive. A match that Chelsea should have won comfortably ended in a dull and listless 0-0 draw, leaving the Stamford Bridge faithful frustrated and ensuring that Chelsea will have to wait a little longer for their first League win under Rafael Benitez.

Barely a few minutes into the game, Hazard was brought down outside the area but nothing came of the free-kick. Ramires had a shot on the 6th minute but it was well wide. Despite having plenty of possession, Chelsea could do nothing with the ball as was proven by the fact that the first chance of the match came more than halfway through the first half. Torres turned and shot, but the attempt was a weak one and Schwarzer collected the ball comfortably. Aside from that, Fulham were content to sit back and let Chelsea play their game, which looked toothless most of the time. To put it politely, the half was far from entertaining. The only good thing about the first half: there was no injury time.

Chelsea started the second half positively, but it was Fulham who had looked likelier to score. First, Berbatov found himself offside when he received the ball on the edge of the area. Then Riise was put clean through on goal but missed his shot entirely. This was Fulham’s best chance of the game. On the other side, Ramires found the space to shoot but it wasn’t the most convincing one and didn’t trouble Schwarzer. Mata was brought on in the 63rd minute and the game livened up considerably, but Chelsea didn’t look like scoring. Fulham were defending well and Chelsea were unable to make the most of their possession. Torres had a chance to shoot and did, but his shot was cleared. Marko Marin made his Premier League debut for Chelsea, replacing Eden Hazard in the 83rd minute. While the German looked lively, his debut for Chelsea was one to forget as the match ended 0-0.
