Chelsea recorded a second Premier League win in seven games as Mason Mount scored late to beat 10-man Fulham 1-0 at Craven Cottage to ease the pressure on boss Frank Lampard.

Both sides had chances in the first half as Mount struck the bar and Ivan Cavaleiro squandered a clear opening for Fulham, but the game’s complexion changed just before half-time as Antonee Robinson was dismissed for a high challenge on Cesar Azpilicueta (44).

Mount’s controlled half volley found the net from inside the box after Alphonse Areola’s weak punch clear from a cross (78).

The result means Chelsea move up to seventh, seven points off leaders Manchester United, but having played a game more, while Fulham stay 18th, four points from safety.
