LONDON (SPORTING ALERT) — Samuel Eto’o starts again for Chelsea in tonight’s English Premier League (EPL) clash with Fulham at Stamford Bridge.
The Cameroon striker got the nod to start ahead of Fernando Torres, who is on the bench after missing the Champions League defeat against FC Basel, while Demba Ba has been left out.
Juan Mata and David Luiz are both left of the squad completely as well, with manager Jose Mourinho making four changes to the side that was upset 2-1 at home in midweek.
John Terry, Ramires, John Obi Mikel, and Andre Schurrle all start, with Frank Lampard and Willian, who started against Basel have both been dropped to the bench.
For Fulham, meanwhile, manager Martin Jol makes three changed to the team that played to a drew 1-1 with West Brom the last time out.
Striker Darren Bent comes into the starting team for the injured Dimitar Berbatov in one of the three adjustments.
