Ahead of the Premier League clash between Chelsea and Fulham on Monday night, Fulham boss Marco Silva has warned Fulham not to underestimate Chelsea despite Chelsea’s poor start to the season.

Chelsea are 15th in the Premier League after winning just one of our first six Premier League games this season.

Silva said: “Against Chelsea it doesn’t matter what they did in the last few games, after the defeat to Villa they reacted and they won against Brighton in the Carabao Cup which is a goal for them [to win].

“Since January they have signed a big number of players who are very good and these things take time. Mauricio, the staff and the players will want to keep improving and to react and if we underestimate them it will be the first big mistake.”
