0 3 months ago

WILFRIED ZAHA continued his blistering start to the season as Crystal Palace claimed a 2-1 win over basement boys Fulham.

The Ivorian was instrumental in both goals for the Eagles – teeing up Jairo Riedewald for the opener before slotting home himself.

Tom Cairney managed a late consolation for the hosts but Palace held on for another impressive win.

Aboubakar Kamara compounded the misery on Scott Parker by seeing red minutes earlier for a challenge on Eberechi Eze.

The Fulham substitute had initially been given a yellow but received his marching orders following a VAR review.

The Cottagers remain bottom following their fifth defeat in their opening six games while Palace climb to fifth – level on points with Leeds and Liverpool.
