Fulham, who sacked manager Martin Jol last week and replaced him with fellow Dutchman Rene Meulensteen, moved to 13 points alongside West Ham United who are one place above the relegation zone owing to a superior goal difference.

Later on Sunday leaders Arsenal take on in-form Everton looking to stretch their advantage to seven points over Liverpool.
