Ghana's Jeffrey Schlupp scores in Palace win over Fulham

Black Stars winger Jeffrey Schlupp scored his fourth Premier League goal of the season as Crystal Palace claimed a hard-fought victory over a lacklustre Fulham at Selhurst Park on Saturday.

Palace captain Luka Milivojevic opened the scoring from the spot midway through the first half after Cyrus Christie handled in the area.

Schlupp then added a late second as he tapped the rebound following a Sergio Rico's fantastic save to deny deadline-day arrival Michy Batshuayi, who had come on moments earlier.

Victory sees the Eagles rise to 14th while Fulham remain 19th - seven points clear of safety.

Schlupp’s compatriot and teammate Jordan Ayew played 82 minutes.
