Fulham's Andreas Pereira celebrates scoring their second goal

A brace by Andreas Pereira ensured Fulham’s third win on the road in this Premier League season when they beat West Ham United 2-0 on Sunday.

Konstantinos Mavropanos lost control of Alex Iwobi’s long ball in the ninth minute and it fell to Pereira inside the box. The former Manchester United midfielder sidestepped keeper Lukasz Fabianski and scored with ease.

Iwobi set up the second goal in the 72nd minute when his cross from the edge of the box nutmegged Nayef Aguerd to find Pereira, who made no mistake with the finish, completing Fulham’s league double over West Ham.

The match temporarily came to a halt in the 85th minute when West Ham’s George Earthy, who had come on as a substitute, went down after colliding with team mate Edson Alvarez. The 19-year-old was taken away on a stretcher after being treated on the field.

Fulham moved up to 12th place with 42 points from 33 matches, equal with Bournemouth who have played a game fewer. West Ham remained eighth with 48 points, four ahead of Chelsea who have three games in hand and host Everton on Monday.
