The Eagles went into the match with the hope of having a better start to the campaign unlike they had in the 2017/18 season – where they had to wait for their fifth game before picking their first point in the campaign.
After a cagey opening period at the Craven Cottage, Jeffrey Schlupp opened the floodgate with four minutes to the end of the first half with a cracking strike.
Fulham came back strongly from recess with the aim of pulling level were thwarted by the sturdy defence of the visitors.
Roy Hodgson’s men wrapped up the win on the 80th minute through Ivorian international Wilfred Zaha who outwitted goalkeeper Fabricio before shooting into an empty net. Schlupp played full throttle of the match for the London-based side.
