Fulham (3) 5-0 (0) Huddersfield

Fulham ended their winless run of six home league matches in style.

Chris Martin, Tomas Kalas and Lucas Piazon gave Fulham a 3-0 half-time lead.

Martin, with a penalty, and Kevin McDonald added further strikes against the shell-shocked Yorkshiremen but the star performer was Sone Aluko, who created three of the goals with his pace and skill.

It was Fulham’s biggest victory since a 5-0 defeat of Norwich, also at Craven Cottage, on the opening day of the 2012-13 season.

Huddersfield have now lost three of their past four.

But manager David Wagner intends to bury the memory of his side’s drubbing.

“I can leave this game very quickly behind us,” Wagner said.

“We don’t have to speak about any tactical problems because we had so many individual mistakes that you couldn’t get anything against any opponent.

“We conceded two early goals after set pieces and we lacked concentration and focus in easy situations.

We totally underperformed. We made so many easy mistakes.

“This happens in football. It shouldn’t but it does and I’ve always said we will have ups and downs on our journey. This was a down.”

Fulham boss Slavisa Jokanovic was delighted that his team had won in front of their own supporters for the first time in seven matches.

He said: “We have shown we can play good football and keep clean sheets and we can be more competitive.”
