There is certainly a lot riding on this West London Derby at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.

Following two-straight defeats, José Mourinho is feeling the pressure in the Chelsea hot seat. Yet the Portuguese boss isn’t showing it.

After using several different players in several different positions, Moruinho is still struggling to find out his best XI.

Brazilian midfielder Ramires has come in for Frank Lampard on Saturday, and John Terry returns from injury to replace David Luiz at the back.

As for Fulham, Berbatov, Senderos and Ruiz all miss out as Martin Jol rings the changes.
