Fulham sustained a 2-0 defeat at Selhurst Park on Saturday afternoon thanks to goals in either half from Luka Milivojevic and Jeffrey Schlupp.

Fulham sustained a 2-0 defeat at Selhurst Park on Saturday afternoon thanks to goals in either half from Luka Milivojevic and Jeffrey Schlupp. 

 

The Serbian opened his account after converting a penalty given for Cyrus Christie’s hand ball in the first-half. 

 

Schlupp doubled the lead three minutes from time after he tapped in from debutant Michy Batshuayi’s parried shot. 

 

Claudio Ranieri made one change to the side that fought back to a 4-2 win over Brighton & Hove Albion in the week with Tom Cairney replacing the injured André Schürrle. 

 

Crystal Palace were dealt a blow in the week as Wilfried Zaha was suspended for the game against the Whites however they were boosted by the addition of deadline day signing Batshuayi to the bench. 

 

Aleksandar Mitrović passed up a golden opportunity after he headed wide from an unmarked position in the box after a nice cross from Joe Bryan in the 11thminute. 

 

Selhurst Park provided somewhat of a rarity for the travelling Fulham fans with a bubbly atmosphere outperforming some of the sterile visits the Whites faithful have had to make of late.

 

The hosts were awarded a penalty in the 23rdminute as Christie gave away a hand ball while battling Christian Benteke, captain Milivojevic calmly dispatched the spot kick to give Palace a 1-0 lead. 

 

Moments later Maxime Le Marchand was booked for bringing down Jordan Ayew on the break, just inside the Fulham half. 

 

Benteke was causing problems again when he hit the crossbar following a bicycle kick at the back post after a nice cross from Andros Townsend in the 36thminute. 

 

Just before the half could draw to a close, Denis Odoi got himself in the referee’s book for a foul on Ayew near the half-way line. 

 

At the interval Ranieri reverted back to the tactics he switched to on Tuesday night with Tim Ream being replaced by Luciano Vietto. 

 

Sergio Rico was forced into a save seven minutes into the second-half when Ayew capitalised on some nice link-up play down Fulham’s right flank to get a shot off at the near post. 

 

Ryan Babel was booked in the 57thminute following a late challenge on Aaron Wan-Bissaka out wide. 

 

Fulham were forced into their second change of the afternoon with Christie going off with what looked like a knock to be replaced by Timothy Fosu-Mensah in the 61stminute. 

 

The Whites relied on Rico to get them out of trouble again when he got down quickly to deny Schlupp from doubling the hosts lead in the 64thminute. 

 

Shortly after, there was a lengthy break in play when James Tomkins had to receive treatment to his face after making contact with the back of Mitrović’s head. 

 

Palace passed up a great chance to enhance their lead but Mamadou Sakho’s header at the back post missed by inches in the 71stminute. Former Fulham manager, Roy Hodgson quickly brought on Max Meyer to replace Benteke before the goal-kick could be taken. 

 

With ten minutes to go Hodgson handed Batshuayi his Palace debut, replacing Ayew in the Eagles’ attack. 

 

It was the Belgian who was heavily involved in the home side’s second goal, as Batshuayi had his shot from inside the box parried away, only for Schlupp to hammer in the loose ball.

 

Floyd Ayité was immediately brought on for Babel as the game drew to a close with the hosts pushing for a third.
