Mourinho has addressed that one of the problems is the side’s lack of goals in recent weeks with the likes of Fernando Torres, Demba Ba and new arrival Samuel Eto’o all yet to get off the mark this season.

This is something that the Chelsea manager has admitted that he would like to address sooner or rather than later and told Chelsea TV that this was the reason for his side’s poor form. He re-iterated this after the defeat to Basel stating: “We need to score goals. When you don’t score goals you are in trouble.”

For Fulham, they know that they will need to step their game up a bit if they are to have any chance of walking away with something from Stamford Bridge.

The Cottagers are currently sitting in 14th place in the Premier League and have only amassed 4 points from a possible 12 so far.

Martin Jol will be hoping that some of his key players will pass fitness tests on Friday to see whether they can make the short journey on Saturday evening.

Most of this focus will be turned onto Dimitar Berbatov as the Bulgarian striker looks to overcome a niggling hamstring injury that has plagued him over the past week.

Another major casualty missing from the Fulham squad will be Costa Rican midfielder Bryan Ruiz who has definitely been ruled out of the derby with an ankle injury.

Despite these losses, Fulham will see Darren Bent make his way back into the side as the former Aston Villa striker has fully recovered from a hamstring problem.

Having lost several of their key names to injury, Fulham know they will be in for a tough time on Saturday as Chelsea look to recapture some of the form that made them one of the favourites for the title this season.
