Raul Jimenez opened the scoring with his fourth goal in his last five games, while Willian and Tosin both added a goal before half time. Substitute Harry Wilson scored a screamer, while another sub Carlos Vinicius finished things off late on.

The thoroughly-deserved victory lifted Fulham into the top half of the table, three points behind ninth-placed West Ham who missed the chance to climb into the Premier League’s top six.

Fulham host Newcastle United on Saturday, Dec. 16. West Ham host SC Freiburg on Thursday, Dec. 14 in the Europa League and then host Wolves on Sunday, Dec. 17.

    After Fulham’s third goal, it looked like Nigeria had scored, with all these Nigeria players celebrating together. I’m referring to Iwobi, Bassey and goal scorer Tosin. Perhaps this will soon happen again in the Nigeria jersey.
    A down to earth moment for Moyes and company. West Ham are a solid team. Losing 5 nil has to be a monumental shock. After the final whistle, Moyes went around shaking hands in a spirit of good sportsmanship, but after his last handshake with Carlos Vinicius, the look on his face as he headed out of the pitch? My goodness! Gbege don set for dressing room. Let’s hope Moyes does not kill sombori today!
    As for Fulham fans, what a week they are having. Two 5 nil wins back to back. Good times are here at Craven Cottage.
