Jimenez continued his performance in the second half, scoring his second goal by navigating past defenders and backheeling the ball into an open goal.

Iwobi added his second and Fulham’s fourth with a straightforward finish from Wilson’s cutback.

Captain Tom Cairney completed the party by capitalizing on a defensive mistake and curling a strike past Odysseas Vlachodimos.

The victory sees Fulham maintain their impressive form so far this season, setting the stage for a another encounter against West Ham.
