Thomas Tuchel's side register 2-0 win over Fulham on Saturday

Chelsea cemented their grip on fourth place in the Premier League after Kai Havertz struck twice to seal a 2-0 win over Fulham on Saturday.

Thomas Tuchel's side warmed up for Wednesday's Champions League semi-final second leg against Real Madrid with a clinical display at Stamford Bridge.

Havertz netted in each half to lift Chelsea six points clear of fifth-placed West Ham in the race to qualify for next season's Champions League.

West Ham have a game in hand at Burnley on Monday, but Chelsea are looking up not down after they closed the gap on third-placed Leicester City to two points with four games left.

"We were spot on. It was what we demanded from ourselves. We showed the pride we are capable of, to do it in between two big games," Tuchel said.

"We knew Fulham gives everyone a hard time. I'm beyond happy. There was no lack of concentration."
