It was a sweet victory for Chelsea at Craven Cottage as they walloped Fulham by two goals to nill in a West London derby.

The victory brought the Mauricio Pochettino’s men three match winless run in the league to an end.

The Blues were in a killer mood, threatening the home team defence ceaselessly with Cole Palmer and Enzo Fernandez combining beautifully in the midfield.

Mykhailo Mydryk, scoring his first goal in Chelsea colour in the 18th minute, controlled with the chest Levi Colwill’s left wing cross before blasting the ball through the legs of Bernd Leno for the first goal of the encounter.

Almost immediately, Chelsea was on course again, as Armando Broja in the 19th minute, capitalised on skipper Tim Ream blunder to register the second goal for Chelsea.

However, the best chance for the Cottagers in the 41st minute was wasted by Raul Jimenez when he headed wide off the post from a corner kick.

In the second half, coach Marco Silva introduced Carlos Vinicius and Nigeria International, Alex Iwobi who added bite to the home team but Chelsea was not in the mood to concede any goal, most especially in the added five minutes.

Meanwhile, at the Theatre of dream, Manchester United continued their miserable season with a surprise loss to Crystal palace by a lone goal.

The Red devils losing four of their opening seven games of the premier league left so much to be desired by their teaming fans.

Manchester United lost to the South londoners in a match Erik Ten Hag side dominated possession throughout the game but did not create any clear cut opening.

The only goal of the encounter was registered in the 26th minute by Joachim Anderson who fired a right footed shot past Andre Onana from Eberechi Eze’s set piece.
