I have said it's no surprise that we drew 1-1 in this one really based on our performances of late. We pick ourselves up for the big games like Newcastle, City and Spurs in the league but for some reason our performances suffer against the likes of Wigan and now Fulham!. In saying that I mean no disrespect to both those sides and to Fulham especially as I don't think Fulham fans thought they would come away with anything after being stuffed 5-0 at home to United.

To their credit they played well, approached the game the right way, defended well and some stand out performers in their Keeper, Ruiz, Dempsey and Bryan Ruiz always kept them in the game despite going a goal down.

So what of our performance? People will once again focus on Torres but to me it's obvious everything we see him play. He is crying out for the service but in the right areas! When he got the service in behind he nearly scored with volley from close range after chesting the ball down. I still can't understand why when Drogba came on he was asked to come out wide right and play there! Surely Drogba would have done a better job there with Torres staying where he was!

Chelsea were disappointing to say the least, we picked up our performance in the second half but again lacked that killer ball and had to settle for efforts outside the box which were easy for the keeper to push over the bar.

Frank Lampard didn't have a good enough game and as taken off, quite rightly so and he wasn't the only one. I thought JT, David Luiz, Raul Meireles and Oriol Romeu were our best players and the result was harsh on them.

Once again another error from Petr Cech cost us to be fair and he really needs to sort out coming for those crosses with confidence. We could argue that the cross should have been stopped in the first place but even still, he should have done better!

So, that's another two points dropped and with United and Spurs winning we are now in a real battle for fourth right now.

After a performance at Spurs where AVB declared that we had turned the corner, we took another two steps back and that's hugely disappointing for all of us!

Credit to Fulham, you deserved a point because once again we simply weren't good enough to beat you!
