Although he's been doing better in the lone role recently too.
Would still prefer Ayew out wide, that’s where he’s played his best football in the premier league.

Palace 2 Fulham 0

- I lost count how many times PVA lost the ball. He needs to step up his game again.
-Schlupp was good.
- Mama was immense and put his head or legs on everything.
- Ayew was great and pressurised them all game.
- Batman is going to be this this year’s RLC where we wished we had made a signing agreement but Chelsea will price us out I’m sure.
- Sako looks like he’s back at home in his own bed after running away from home.
Easiest game of the season and although we all stressed a little thinking they’re bound to get a pen or a lucky goal, in reality it was never likely.

Top win and we’re within reaching distance now or safety with a couple/three wins IMHO.

An important win but I thought we looked a bit flat throughout. Maybe the two days between games is not long enough for full recovery for some players

Ayew had his best game playing alongside Benteke who is starting to look like he might get back to the player we had in 2016-17. Ayew looked so much better in the role he played at Swansea

The defence were as good as they were against Spurs. Complete change of the back five except for PvA who was the weakest player in both games

Good cameo from Batshuayi that gives hope that we might have a player who comes alive in the box with pace and movement when we are on the attack

For team that have spent over £100M on players Fulham looked piss poor throughout

The referee had a decent game compared to the muppet we had on Wednesday night

I love Guaita. Feel so safe with him there. I thought Schlup was fantastic and got my MoM never been a fan but he really did show up today. And what a fantastic intro by Batshuayi.

I'm not sure. I wouldn't mind him being used there but obviously we have Wilf and Andros for there. He has that versatile ability across the forward line which makes him useful. And he has improved when playing in the middle of the three recently too.

8 Benteke great return to the starting line-up, created plenty of danger, caused the penalty and nearly got a worldie when he hit the bar
6 Meyer 72 min for Beneteke, kept the ball moving well, did nothing too special
8 Batshuayi 82 min for Ayew, created danger immediately, superb dribbling that led to the goal
- Sako one or two good moments, nice to see him again
7 Roy spot-on with the substitutions, feel his general set-up at home needs to be more offensive, he does now have the vital strikers he's been missing all season
agree with that pretty much and saves me from typing. Couple of points. 1 Meyer and the Bat (can I call him that?) seemed to strke up an undrstanding very quickly and forward on to keep the ball and take the at the business end of the game we linked midfield and forwards really well allowig us to get a second goal and finish on the front foot which leads me on to point 2

At Southampton it cried out for us to get a big man on to win and keep the ball to take the pressure off and get the team up the pitch. A poor teamESCAPED WITH A POINT. Today Roy got it dead right. Lesson learned I hope

A good win and thought we played really well.

Impressed with all of them but particularly Benteke, Guaita, Wan Bissaka, Sakho, Schlupp, Ayew and Benteke.

Benteke looked like the player he once was and deserved to score when he hit the bar.
Ayew has improved in the last month and not my MOM vote.
The back four did well but van Aanholt is out of form.
I was once again impressed with Guaita. However I'm not sure about his blonde hair.
Midfield did well and it was good to see Schlupp score. He has done that home and away against Fulham this season.
Batshuayi looks like he could be a big part of the next three months and started well.
It was good to see Sako again. It was like he has never been away.

I don't see us finishing in the bottom two. We need to make sure we do not finish in the bottom three and today goes a long way to that happening.

Although I agree with all that’s been said the one thing that really stands out is that we need to find someone who take a corner
We have three or four real beasts that go up for them and we rarely get the ball past the first defender
