England Premier League : West London Derby - Fulham 0-3 Chelsea

David Luiz scored a memorable long-range strike to putting Chelsea ahead against Fulham with a game in hand on their rivals.

At the 30th minute of the contest, the Brazil international picked up the ball 35 yards from the goal before unleashing an unstoppable right-footed strike that soared into the top of Fulham goalkeeper Mark Schwarzer’s net.

The blistering shot seemed to have a devastating effect on Fulham, leaving them mindfully defeated from the start - and they could not regain their confidence to catch up or stop Chelsea.

John Terry’s header gave the Blues a two-goal lead at the break and the captain added a second header to kill the game off.

Late in the season, the giant football clubs of England are involved in a fierce fight to win the Premier League trophy and for Champions League placement. Man United are in 1st place with 81 points; Man City are in 2nd with 68 points; Chelsea are back in third with 61 points; Arsenal is in 4rd with 60 points; Spurs in fifth at 58 points; Everton are in sixth with 56 points; and FC Liverpool is in seventh with 50 points.

Rafael Benitez made four changes from the FA Cup defeat to Manchester City, bringing Terry and Frank Lampard, Victor Moses and Fernando Torres back in ahead of Oscar and Demba Ba.

Lampard made his 600th appearance for Chelsea.
