Chelsea began to ask questions and they got an answer as Mason Mount's superb control from a Thiago Silva's long pass, assisted Havertz who tucked the ball beyond the goalkeeper to make it 1-0 after ten minutes.

The Blues continued their high pressing game as Timo Werner broke out loose from the right and found Havertz who was arriving, but his shot went to the side of the post.

Fulham's best chance in the half was a shot from Ola Aina that took a heavy deflection from Reece James which made Edouard Mendy make a difficult save.

Four minutes after the start of the second half, another well-worked move from Chelsea resulted into a fine goal.

Havertz controlled a long ball and out-muscled his marker before finding Werner who returned the favour, as his pass cut open Fulham's defence for the German to net his second in style.

Chelsea are looking good for their Champions League semi final decider against visiting Real Madrid in midweek at Stamford Bridge.

Meanwhile, Legit.ng had earlier reported that Olivier Giroud was spotted asking former teammate and Real Madrid's number one Thibaut Courtois on how he saved Timo Werner's shot from close range, Sport Bible.

The German striker missed from four yards after just having only the Belgian to beat who saved the ball with his legs.

Werner has come under huge criticism for failing to score many goals and particularly at point blank range.
