A moment of magic by substitute Michy Batshuayi created Crystal Palace's second goal for Jeffrey Schlupp with a 2-0 victory over Fulham, who became the first side in the history of top flight to lose eight consecutive derby in London.
The Belgian striker signed a loan only during the middle week, but made a direct impact within minutes of arriving from the bench late. He returned sharply to a shot that Fulham's Sergio Rico's guard could only break Schlupp.

The day was badly on the side for Claudio Ranieri when Cyrus Christie manipulated the ball into the area as he challenged Christian Benteke in 25 minutes.
Luka Milivojevic duly punished, which was only the seventh season host of the season, and arrived almost a minute later when Benteke's scissors fell from the cross.
Fulham's Rico was by far the busiest captain and he did well to defeat a raging shot by Denis Odi, as the Palace made the light of the absence of the suspended wing Wilfried Zaha.
Fulham remains the only side of the Premier League without winning away this season and is now seven points apart from the 17th Burnley.
