Ola Aina was among the scorers when Fulham recorded their first Premier League win of the season.

The newly-promoted side defeated former Championship rivals West Brom by 2-0 at Craven Cottage to ease the pressure on manager Scott Parker.

Ademola Lookman's long-range effort was the closest Fulham got on goal as chances were few and far between.

It took 26 minutes for the Cottagers to score their first goal through Boby Reid with an assisted pass from Aleksandar Mitrovic to make it 1-0.

Four minutes later, Aina scored the goal of the game with a one-touch pass with his teammates as Mitrovic teed him up with the last touch before unleashing a belter with his favourite left foot to make it 2-0.

It was the first Premier League goal scored by the Chelsea academy graduate in five years as he marked his return to English football after a two-season spell at Torino.

Fulham have now moved out of the bottom three after recording their first win in the 2020-21 season.

West Brom, Sheffield United and Burnley occupy the 18th, 19th and 20th position respectively as they all still await their first win after seven matches.

Nantes hoped to halt PSG’s blistering form as they have won six straight games and just fifteen minutes into the encounter, the ball was squared to Simon who only needed a tap in, however, he fluffed the opportunity.

He ran in for an empty goal, but tapped the ball against his own supporting leg - and just about ten minutes later, he was down with an injury to his adductors and was consequently substituted.
