Marco Silva’s men – who beat Reading 7-0 on January 11 and Bristol City 6-2 four days later – took the lead after 10 minutes when Marc Roberts turned Harry Wilson’s cross into his own net.

And after 43 minutes it was 4-0, as Neeskens Kebano, Fabio Carvalho and Tom Cairney struck for the rampaging Cottagers, but Ivan Sunjic struck a stunner before the break to give the travelling Blues fans something to shout about at the break.


A controlled finish from Gary Gardner gave the visitors further hope of comeback after half time in west London, though that was extinguished when Carvalho added his second within 60 seconds.

Antonee Robinson added the gloss in second half stoppage time, rounding off a crushing victory that moves Fulham five points clear of second-placed Bournemouth.

Meanwhile, in the evening’s other second tier fixture, Preston fought back from a two goals down to hold Sheffield United to a 2-2 draw.

Jayden Bogle’s 17th minute strike gave the Blades the lead at Deepdale, before Andrew Hughes gave away a penalty and was given a red card for his troubles, with Billy Sharp converting from the spot.
