It was a very difficult game against ten men Fulham, as Mason Mount scored in the 78th minute to get all 3 points for the Blues.

With Fulham deep in their half blocking their box, it seemed like the game would end in a goalless draw.

However, Mason Mount scored a cracking late goal, which was the 11th goal Chelsea have scored in the final 15 minutes of games this season.

Chelsea lead Premier League late goals with 11 late strikes coming in the final quarter of the game, and the only other side to have achieved this in the league are Leicester City who are tied with Chelsea with 11 late goals.

Meanwhile, Chelsea set another record following the 1-0 victory.

Chelsea have now won 131 Premier League games by a 1-0 scoreline following the victory over Fulham on Saturday. No other team in the history of the Premier League have won more games by a 1-0 scoreline than Chelsea.

Mount’s late winner helped Chelsea end the losing streak and climb to 7th in the table. Chelsea visit the King Power Stadium next to face Leicester City on Tuesday.
