Fulham defeated Brighton & Hove Albion 2-1 at Craven Cottage thanks to Aleksandar Mitrovic’s 100th goal for the club.
Neeskens Kebano sent in a low cross, and the Serb was there to finish it off at the back post, scoring his fifth goal in as many games and fourth in front of his own supporters.
Three minutes after the halftime break, Fulham scored, and they didn’t have to wait long to increase their lead. Lewis Dunk, the captain of Albion, deflected Andreas Pereira’s cross past Robert Sanchez in the Brighton goal to give Fulham the unlikely victory.
Bobby Decordova-Reid brought down Pervis Estupinan, a summer signing from Villarreal, and Brighton responded from the spot just as Marco Silva’s team appeared to be cruising to their second victory of the campaign.
As he did against West Ham United, Alexis Mac Allister stepped up and buried the penalty kick high into Bernd Leno’s net to cut the deficit in half.
While Fulham held on to move into the top six of the Premier League and end Albion’s unbeaten start to the Premier League season, Deniz Undav hit the post late in the game as Brighton pushed for an equaliser.
