Chelsea finally capitalized on the first-half sending-off of U.S. international Antonee Robinson by scoring in the 78th minute to see off stubborn Fulham 1-0 in the English Premier League on Saturday. Mason Mount drilled home the winner from a central position inside the area after Fulham goalkeeper Alphonse Areola could only scoop away a cross from the left by Ben Chilwell. Chelsea manager Frank Lampard, who has been under pressure after a run of poor results, punched the air in joy and likely relief, with his team having toiled in attempting to break down a home side which played with 10 men for the entire second half.
RB Leipzig were left rueing their squandered chance to replace Bayern Munich as Bundesliga leaders on Saturday after being held to a 2-2 draw at Wolfsburg.
Borussia Dortmund captain Marco Reus missed a penalty in a 1-1 draw with lowly Mainz while Leipzig again missed the chance to move to the top of the Bundesliga on Saturday. Leipzig, which was denied top spot in losing to Dortmund 3-1 last weekend, could manage only 2-2 at Wolfsburg and it remains a point behind league leader Bayern Munich. Dortmund was looking for its fourth win in five league games under new coach Edin Terzic but was frustrated by a committed performance from Mainz in Bo Svensson's second match in charge.
