Surging Fulham hammer Brighton

Fulham made it back-to-back wins in the Premier League as they cruised past Brighton 3-0 at Craven Cottage on Saturday.

WATCH FULL REPLAY

Harry Wilson and Rodrigo Muniz did the damage in the first half as rthe former curled home after Muniz had bullied Brighton's defense, then Wilson curled a wonderful cross into the box for Muniz to nod home his fifth goal in as many games.

Brighton improved in the second half and hit the post through Facundo Buonanotte but Fulham sub Adama Traore finished Brighton off on the break as Marco Silva's side have now won three of their last four.

That run means Fulham are now on 35 points and are pushing for a top 10 finish, while Brighton are just four points ahead of Fulham as their alarming slump continues and now they face Roma in their Europa League last 16 first leg on Thursday. Roberto De Zerbi was far from happy on the sidelines as the Seagulls have been so inconsistent and haven't secured back-to-back wins since September.

Wilson is in again but Webster denies his shot with a last-ditch block. Fulham will get lots of chances on the break to finish this off.

Ferguson should score for Brighton

What a chance for Brighton as Lallana clips in Ferguson but the youngster dinks his shot wide. Has to score there. Brighton are well on top now and creating plenty of chances. Finally they've woken up.

Fulham continue to push forward and Wilson is in again but drags his shot across goal wide of the far post. Brighton are all over the place.

Wilson curls a brilliant cross into the box and Muniz now has five goals in his last five games as he heads home calmly. The Cottagers love playing against Brighton. They've never lost to them in the Premier League. Doesn't look like they will lose to them today either.

Brighton lineup

Steele; Van Hecke, Dunk, Veltman; Lamptey, Webster, Baleba, Estupinan; Enciso, Lallana, Ferguson

Fulham focus, team news

Silva has a strong defensive unit and now there’s a real cutting edge in attack. Iwobi being back is huge.

Brighton focus, team news

Mitoma going down with an injury is a big blow, while Joao Pedro’s absence means Brighton have lost a bit of drive and creativity in attack.
