This Sunday, Claudio Ranieri takes his squad to a place he knows only too well, Stamford Bridge.

Claudio spent time in the managerial hot-seat, at Chelsea, before making way for Jose Mourinho.

In fact, Claudio secured Champions League football for the club as well as leading them to second place in the Premier League, their highest placing before winning it.

On Sunday, Claudio will be looking to get one over the club he once managed by inflicting a second defeat of the season on Chelsea.

But, with victories for Fulham a scarcity this season, how do you quell the attacking intent Chelsea possess?

Here at Vital Fulham, we’ve come up with three suggestions.

The first involves Chelsea’s summer signing Jorginho.

Despite their bright start to the season, Chelsea haven’t won either of their last two games, drawing with Everton and losing to Tottenham. In both games, it has been noticeable that the opposition have stifled the Italian thereby preventing him from controlling the pace and pattern of the game. Hopefully, Ranieri will have noticed that and will have a plan in mind.

The second involves Eden Hazard.

If you can keep the Belgian quiet, then you can frustrate Chelsea. The best player in the Premier League tends to be the catalyst for everything Chelsea do. Keep him quiet and a surprise result could be ours.

The third revolves around our attacking play. It was noticeable, on Sunday, Tottenham utilised the space between the Chelsea midfield and the back-four, Fulham need to push-on and drive at the heart of what isn’t the most secure of Chelsea defences.

Fingers crossed and we could have two wins on the bounce to celebrate.
