Terry Hands Chelsea Win

A dominant display form Chelsea, spearheaded by John Terry and his brace on the night, saw the Blues overpower Fulham 3-0 in Barclays Premiership match at Craven Cottage on Wednesday night.

The away side broke the deadlock midway through the first half in stunning fashion when David Luiz’s shot from 30 yards flew past Mark Schwarzer into the top corner.

John Terry, restored to the Chelsea line up, then doubled their advantage when he met Juan Mata’s floated cross just before the break.

Fulham improved after the break but another Terry header from close range sealed the win.

Heading into the game, Tuesday evening’s uneventful draw between Arsenal and Everton provided Chelsea with an opportunity to have a closer whiff of Champions League football.

It was a night of achievements at Craven Cottage as Frank Lampard became only the third-player in Chelsea’s history to reach the milestone of 600-apppearances for the club while Luiz marked his 100th appearance with a stunning goal to give Chelsea the lead in the 30th minute.

The Brazilian received the ball from Eden Hazard and unleashed an incredible thunderbolt into the top-corner.

Terry who, along Lampard, returned to Rafael Benitez’s starting line-up also marked his return with a powerful header to extend The Blues’ lead to 2-0 in the 40th minute after being pleasantly set-up by Juan Mata.

Chelsea maintained a 0-2 lead as the sides headed into the interval.

In the second half Benitez’s man continued to pile the host with pressure despite Dimitar Berbatov proving to be handy every time the Cottagers was on the attack.

It was Terry again that put the game beyond Fulham as he headed home Chelsea’s third of the night, his second, to make it 0-3 in the 71st minute to seal the win for his side, Fernando Torres with the assist this time.

The win sees Chelsea maintain their third place position on the log with 61 points from 32 games, one point above Arsenal in fourth and having played a game less.
