Fullham 0 - 0 Chelsea


Cech's last-minute penalty stop salvaged Chelsea a point at Fulham but their title hopes continue to fade. The hosts rarely threatened before Clint Dempsey was fouled by David Luiz in stoppage time, only for Cech to keep out the American's spot-kick. Fernando Torres was wasteful as Chelsea dominated, the Spaniard's touch letting him down when put through by Luiz and then nodding over a cross by Ramires. Michael Essien went close with a header before the late drama unfolded. It was a breathtaking finish to a match that had, up until the 93rd minute, been a quite unspectacular event.Fulham, on the back of three home victories, would have sensed more blood going into this battle at Craven Cottage against the defending Premier League champions and although they created precious little, Mark Hughes' team will rue their missed opportunity to snatch victory and rise to ninth in the table.
