John Terry scored twice and David Luiz opened the scoring with a belter as Chelsea dispatched neighbours Fulham with ease at Craven Cottage.
After a mostly quiet start to the night from both sides David Luiz accepted Eden Hazard’s short pass, took a few steps goalward and then unleashed a screamer from all of 35 yards that swung to the outside and found top corner of the net beyond a helpless Mark Schwarzer.
Terry doubled the lead with two minutes to play in the first half when he ran between Sascha Riether and Philippe Senderos and headed an insurance marker past the Australian goalkeeper, and Senderos exhibited poor marking on Terry’s second goal in the 71st minute when the Chelsea captain completed a corner-kick that Fernando Torres had deflected into the goalmouth.
From there the match was over as a contest, and with the three points Chelsea moved into third spot ahead of Arsenal while Fulham remained in 10th position.
