(Video) His cool performance! All Joao Felix vs Fulham actions

Joao Felix was sent off, and goals from Willian and Carlos Vinicius gave the Cottagers a rare win over a local rival.


Report and high points as Chelsea loses to Fulham for the first time since 2006; Willian scored against his old team, and Carlos Vinicius got his first goal in a long time. Joao Felix was sent off after a good first game, and Kalidou Koulibaly’s goal wasn’t enough for Graham Potter’s struggling team.

On Thursday, Fulham beat local rivals Chelsea for the first time in almost 17 years. Their 2-1 win at a lively Craven Cottage moved them up to sixth in the Premier League and put pressure on Blues manager Graham Potter, whose new loan player Joao Felix was sent off on his debut.

After a good start by the visitors, Willian got Fulham going by scoring with the help of a deflection (25). He did this against Chelsea, where he played for seven years.

Bobby Decordova-Reid had already hit the bar for Fulham, and the Chelsea defense didn’t look very confident at that point. However, Potter’s team got the equalizer at the start of the second half when Kalidou Koulibaly forced the ball over the line after Mason Mount’s free kick hit the post.

That looked like it would give Chelsea the chance to go on and win a morale-boosting comeback game. Instead, they lost to their neighbors in a rare and very bad way. They have only gotten six points from their last nine Premier League games, which is their worst run since 1996.
