So much for the much-vaunted debut of Fernando Torres, a lot of good that did for Chelsea. You can chalk it up to either a player getting a feel for the team (despite appearances) or really just a bad run. Then again, Chelsea is set to go up against another hard-luck company in the company of Fulham. Coming out by the skin of their teeth from their match against Aston Villa, Fulham is not exactly a club that I would say is in top form. Fulham can, and must, take advantage of what is a perceived awkward stage for Chelsea if they want to pull off this one. But if you ask me, at these odds, I’m putting it behind Chelsea on this one.
