Fulham 3-2 Southampton: Fulham Secures First League Victory Since August


Claudio Ranieri got off to a winning start with Fulham, who ended a six-match losing run with a 3-2 victory over Southampton.

Stuart Armstrong’s first Southampton goal gave Saints the lead at Craven Cottage before Aleksandar Mitrovic headed the home side level on 33 minutes.

Andre Schurrle put Fulham in front just before half-time from Ryan Sessegnon’s superb cross but Southampton pulled level with Armstrong’s second goal eight minutes after the break.

Mitrovic volleyed in Sessegnon’s flick-on with 27 minutes remaining and Fulham hung on to climb off the bottom of the table with eight points at the expense of Huddersfield Town.

Southampton stay in 17th, ahead of Fulham on goal difference only.
