  1. Post update

    Fulham 3-2 Southampton

    It is only the Cottagers' second Premier League win of the season and puts them level with Southampton on eight points.

    Thanks for joining me today. You can now read Phil McNulty's match report here.

  2. FULL-TIME

    Fulham 3-2 Southampton

    And the final whistle goes, giving Claudio Ranieri a winning start as Fulham manager.

  3. Easy for Rico

    Fulham 3-2 Southampton

    Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg has a shot from outside the box blocked before firing the rebound into the chest of Sergio Rico.

  4. YELLOW CARD

    Fulham 3-2 Southampton

    Stefan Johansen and Michael Obafemi were booked for clashing after Sergio Rico gathered that high ball.

  5. CLOSE!

    Fulham 3-2 Southampton

    Mohamed Elyounoussi somehow manages to thread it through to fellow substitute Michael Obafemi inside the box but his close-range effort is saved at the near post by Sergio Rico, who then leaps high to gather the rebound.

  6. INJURY TIME

    Fulham 3-2 Southampton

    Five minutes are indicated - still time for Southampton to salvage something.

  7. Nervy moment

    Fulham 3-2 Southampton

    Mohamed Elyounoussi fails to direct Nathan Redmond's cut-back goalwards, while Maxime Le Marchand gives the home fans a nervy moment as he heads back to Sergio Rico.

  8. Obafemi over

    Fulham 3-2 Southampton

    Neat turn by Southampton substitute Michael Obafemi on the edge of the box but he sends his volley over the bar.

    The 18-year-old snatched at that one - should have let it drop a bit more.

  9. SUBSTITUTION

    Fulham 3-2 Southampton

    Final change for Fulham and it's Aleksandar Mitrovic, who looks set to be the match-winner, that makes way for Floyd Ayite.

  10. Saints frustrated

    Fulham 3-2 Southampton

    Southampton play it round the Fulham box before Matt Targett finds substitute Michael Obafemi in the box, but the forward can't quite get it out of his feet and it goes behind for a goal-kick.

  11. SUBSTITUTION

    Fulham 3-2 Southampton

    New Republic of Ireland international Michael Obafemi comes on for Southampton's goalscorer Stuart Armstrong, yet at the moment his double is going to count for nowt.

  12. Exciting finish beckons

    Fulham 3-2 Southampton

    Southampton pressure starting to build, but Fulham still look dangerous on the break.

    Should be an exciting finish here. Time to see what Mark Hughes' Saints are made of.

  13. SUBSTITUTION

    Fulham 3-2 Southampton

    Fulham goalscorer Andre Schurrle is replaced by Aboubakar Kamara.

    Andre Schurrle Aboubakar Kamara
  14. YELLOW CARD

    Fulham 3-2 Southampton

    Southampton defender Wesley Hoedt gives away a free-kick before giving the referee some backchat.

    And it's the dissent that earns him a booking.

  15. Saints denied

    Fulham 3-2 Southampton

    Another well-worked move by Southampton and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg shifts into it on his left foot, but his shot is too close to Sergio Rico, who parries it to safety.

    Been a great game so far this... and there could be more goals to come!

  16. SUBSTITUTION

    Fulham 3-2 Southampton

    Fulham bring off Jean Michael Seri for Stefan Johansen, while Southampton striker Charlie Austin is replaced by Mohamed Elyounoussi.

    Jean Michael Seri and Claudio Ranieri
  17. YELLOW CARD

    Fulham 3-2 Southampton

    Although the referee plays on after Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg's late challenge on Tom Cairney, he then books the Danish midfielder when the ball goes out of play.

  18. GOAL - Aleksandar Mitrovic

    Fulham 3-2 Southampton

    Fulham back in front - through an acrobatic volley by Aleksandar Mitrovic.

    Ryan Sessegnon flicks on Cyrus Christie's right-wing cross and Mitrovic shows he's not just a target-man by adjusting his feet to steer the ball back across goal and inside the post for his seventh league goal of the season.

    Although he hadn't scored for six Premier League games before today, the Serbian striker did score twice in the international break and the Cottagers' top scorer is now firmly back in form.

    Aleksandar Mitrovic
  19. Saints show fighting spirit

    Fulham 2-2 Southampton

    Phil McNulty

    BBC Sport chief football writer at Craven Cottage

    This has been a really lively start to the second half with Fulham almost extending their lead at one end before Stuart Armstrong drew Southampton level with that cracker.

    New Fulham manager Claudio Ranieri will want to work on defending when he gets his side back at their Motspur Park training base next week. Great finish - but sloppy stuff in the build up.

  20. Chambers over

    Fulham 2-2 Southampton

    Anything you can do... I can't do quite as well.

    Perhaps inspired by Stuart Armstrong, Fulham defender Calum Chambers tries his luck from outside the box, only to fire it well over.
