Ahead of Saturday’s Premier League game against Fulham at Stamford Bridge, Fulham boss Scott Parker believes his team can beat Chelsea.
Parker believes Chelsea’s 5-2 defeat to West Brom is proof Fulham can beat Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.
“The reason I believe is because it’s so close, as in the games are so close,” Parker said.
“I know that (the last-minute defeats are) going to have an effect, I’m not going to lie to you, that has an effect, it’s going to have an effect on the players.
“I get that in another game’s time or two games, because we can no longer say there’s a lot of games left of course that’s not the case, but certainly can we go to Chelsea, like we went to Arsenal and Everton and get a result or be in this game and try and get something?
“I believe we can, and if we do, like West Brom did, is our picture changed? Yes.
“It’s my job to keep banging that drum and however I try and get that mindset to change in a player – certainly (if) my players (do think it’s over) I need to try and change that mindset if that is the case, and I don’t believe it is.
“Maybe there’s a few (who think that), of course there is, because the disappointment of what’s happened, not just over the last few games, but in parts of this season, some people are different, some people are a little bit weaker in those moments, some people will look at the more pessimistic side than the optimistic side.”
