Fulham 2-0 West Brom: As it happened – LIVE!

Fulham earned their first Premier League win of the season after scoring two goals in five first-half minutes to down West Brom 2-0.

Bobby De Cordova-Reid nodded in from close range for the opening goal in the 26th minute, and right back Ola Aina popped up on the edge of West Brom’s penalty area and fired a rising shot into the top corner.

Fulham came into the game with just one point from six outings, but collected three points and their first clean sheet as new signings Joachim Andersen and Tosin Adarabioyo paired at centre-back for the first time.

West Brom are one of three teams still waiting for their first victory of the campaign and dropped to 17th place on three points from seven games.

Fulham XI: Areola, Aina, Adarabioyo, Andersen, Robinson, Zambo, Lemina, Cairney, Reid, Mitrovic, Lookman

West Brom XI: Johnstone, Furlong, Ivanovic, Ajayi, Townsend, Livermore, Matheus Pereira, Gallagher, Krovinovic, Diangana, Ahearne-Grant

Reed’s introduction for Lemina at the break shows just how important holding onto this is for Fulham. He’s less adventurous on the ball than his former Southampton teammate but offers so much to this Fulham side. Reed hasn’t stopped running, pressing and covering, since his introduction and is controlling things well so far.
