Chelsea boosted their own chances of finishing in the Premier League’s top four with a derby day victory on Sunday.
One of the club’s wingers reached a milestone in that match, putting him in an exclusive club.
The Blues announced that they will be travelling to the United States of America towards the end of the campaign for a friendly match.
Supporters can now vote for who they would like to see featured on the Shed Wall, with the nominations for the latest addition being released throughout this week.
And, the club’s campaign against Anti-Semitism has received for its work in the community.
Fulham 1-2 Chelsea
Chelsea’s only match this week saw them defeat London rivals Fulham 2-1 at Craven Cottage on Sunday, their second Premier League victory over London-based opposition in as many matches.
Gonzalo Higuain opened the scoring after 20 minutes, finishing off a sublime team move with an emphatic finish on the end of Cesar Azpilicueta’s cross, his third goal for the Blues.
Maurizio Sarri’s side’s lead lasted just eight minutes, with Arsenal loanee Callum Chambers volleying in Ryan Babel’s cross at the back post.
The Blues regained their advantage and sealed the win before the interval, with Jorginho placing his effort into the top corner of Sergio Rico’s net, his first goal for Chelsea since the opening weekend of the season and his first goal for the club from open play.
A victory means that Chelsea are only a point behind fifth-placed Arsenal and two behind Manchester United in fourth, with a game in hand at home to Brighton & Hove Albion being a probable source of three important points.
Hazard joins an exclusive club
Jorginho’s goal was created by Belgian starlet Eden Hazard, who put himself into an exclusive club with that assist.
It was his 50th in the Premier League, making him only the 39th player in the league’s history to do so.
He also became only the third player in Chelsea’s history to reach 50 goals and 50 assists in the Premier League, with Frank Lampard and Didier Drogba the other two members of this exclusive club.
