The Blues moved three points clear of West Ham United in fifth with a 1-0 win at London Stadium last time out. Victory was secured by a first-half Timo Werner goal and Thomas Tuchel was delighted to see his fellow German's name back on the scoresheet. 

"The boys are very, very happy in the dressing room, it was a great performance, an amazing result and I think a well-deserved win for us," said Tuchel. 

"He [Werner] needs to keep on scoring and catch the moment," Tuchel added "He is quite often involved in our goals, even in the last weeks with fouls in the penalty area, or assists like against Manchester City [in the FA Cup]. 

"But nothing helps more than scoring goals."
Fulham have seen their survival push take a huge hit in recent weeks. A 1-1 draw at Arsenal was preceded by four straight defeats, which leaves them seven points from safety and a mountain to club with just five matches remaining.

A solitary strike from Mason Mount led Chelsea to a 1-0 win over Fulham in the reverse fixture at Craven Cottage earlier this season.
