Mykhailo Mudryk scored his first Chelsea goal as they saw off Fulham on Monday night with Armando Broja getting the second in a routine 2-0 Premier League win.
After seeing off Marco Silva’s side, it has been revealed that Chelsea have put an end to an unwanted record.
Chelsea have won a Premier League game against a side starting the day above them in the table for the first time since May 2021 (a 2-1 win vs Leicester), ending their 18-game winless run against teams above them in the competition (D5 L13).
The Blues’ next outing sees them face off with Burnley on October 7, and they can be backed at 4/6 with bet365 to pick up the win.
Chelsea’s win over Fulham has moved them up from 14th in the Premier League table to 11th. They are now just one point behind Manchester United in 10th.
The west Londoner’s next opponents, meanwhile, sit 19th in the division and are just one of three sides yet to secure a win in the top flight this term.
Burnley also have a dismal record against Chelsea, last beating them all the way back in August 2017. The following nine meetings since then have seen Chelsea win seven and draw two.
