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.
