Fulham forward Ryan Sessegnon hopes his side can back up their win over Southampton by claiming a victory at Chelsea this weekend.

The Cottagers overcame Saints 3-2 at Craven Cottage in Claudio Ranieri’s first game in charge but remain bottom of the Premier League table.

Fulham face a tough trip to Ranieri’s former club Chelsea on Sunday, but Sessegnon feels his side can cause a derby upset at Stamford Bridge.

“We know it’s a big game for both the club and the fans as well,” he told the club’s official website.

“We also have to look at it as another Premier League game where we can get three points.

“The win was a massive boost of confidence for everyone involved, and we all know we have to use this victory to kick-on now against Chelsea.”

Sessegnon provided two assists in the win over Southampton and is 8.00 to score at anytime at Stamford Bridge.

The 18-year-old also heaped the praise on Ranieri and he expects Fulham to continue to improve under the guidance of the Italian.

Chelsea are currently fourth in the standings and will be looking to bounce back after seeing their unbeaten Premier League record ended at Tottenham last weekend.

Fulham are 15.00 to claim a victory over the Blues, Chelsea can be backed at 1.17 and a draw is 7.50.

The Cottagers entertain Leicester after their meeting with Chelsea, before games against Manchester United (a), West Ham (h) and Newcastle (a).
