  1. Post update

    Fulham 0-3 Bournemouth

    That's all from Craven Cottage, where Bournemouth are lapping up the adulation of their supporters.

    Our coverage of today's Premier League action, including live reaction from this match, continues here.

    See you next time!

  2. FULL-TIME

    Fulham 0-3 Bournemouth

    Game over.

    You'll read a lot about Fulham's problems after this one, but don't let it take away from what was a mature and clinical performance from Bournemouth.

  3. SUBSTITUTION

    Fulham 0-3 Bournemouth

    David Brooks and Ryan Fraser are off, and on come Junior Stanislas and Jermain Defoe for the visitors.

  4. GOAL - Callum Wilson

    Fulham 0-3 Bournemouth

    Ryan Fraser finds Callum Wilson in acres of space and he smashes it home for a third.

    This is a bad, bad day for Fulham... but Bournemouth absolutely deserve the three points. They have been so clinical in attack.

  5. SUBSTITUTION

    Fulham 0-2 Bournemouth

    Bournemouth make their first change, with Lewis Cook replaced by Dan Gosling

  6. SUBSTITUTION

    Fulham 0-2 Bournemouth

  7. Post update

    Fulham 0-2 Bournemouth

    Aleksander Mitrovic blasts over for Fulham.

    Time is running out for the hosts, but this game has more than an air of inevitability about it now.

  8. Post update

    Fulham 0-2 Bournemouth

    Aboubakar Kamara is a lucky man - by the letter of the law, he should be off.

    Bournemouth win a free kick and the Frenchman petulantly kicks the ball away... that should have been a second yellow.

    The visitors won't see it like this - but that's composed refereeing from Andre Marriner who issues a final warning.

  9. RED CARD - Kevin McDonald

    Fulham 0-2 Bournemouth

    Game over, surely?

    A sloppy pass from Denis Odoi sees goalscorer David Brooks intercept and Kevin McDonald brings him down before being shwon his second yellow

  10. GOAL - David Brooks

    Fulham 0-2 Bournemouth

    Fulham have dominated the last 10 minutes or so, but this game looks beyond them now.

    It's a classic counter-attack from Bournemouth, with Callum Wilson sliding to win the ball to set Ryan Fraser free. Fraser's pass to David Brooks is timed perfectly and the former Sheffield United man slots the ball between the legs of goalkeeper Sergio Rico.

  11. Post update

    Fulham 0-1 Bournemouth

    It's all Fulham, and for the first time in what feels like a long time, Aleksander Mitrovic gets an effort away.

    The Serbian hasn't had much service this afternoon, and his header goes well wide, but you feel he will be key to the Cottagers' chances.

  12. Post update

    Fulham 0-1 Bournemouth

    That substitution will prompt a change of shape for the home side.

    Fulham have gone with Ryan Sessegnon taking Maxime Le Marchand's place at left back. Andre Schurrle has moved to wide left with Tom Cairney in the middle next to Jean Michael Seri

  13. SUBSTITUTION

    Fulham 0-1 Bournemouth

    The first change of the afternoon comes from Fulham.

    It's a welcome return from injury for Tom Cairney who replaces Maxime Le Marchand.

    Can Cairney provide a spark? His introduction has lifted the home supporters.

  14. Post update

    Fulham 0-1 Bournemouth

    Ooof!

    That's a terrfic effort from outside the area by Simon Francis on the half-volley, but Sergio Rico denies the Bournemouth man.

  15. Post update

    Fulham 0-1 Bournemouth

    Great opportunity for Bournemouth as Fulham keeper Sergio Rico's punch causes chaos in the box, but the visitors are unable to capitalise

  16. YELLOW CARD - Kevin McDonald

    Fulham 0-1 Bournemouth

    Home captain Kevin McDonald goes into the book for taking down Ryan Fraser as he broke through the middle.

  17. Post update

    Fulham 0-1 Bournemouth

    Chance for Fulham goes begging!

    Ryan Sessegnon beats his man and fires a cross in, but it flashes past everyone.

  18. Post update

    Fulham 0-1 Bournemouth

    A break in play early in the half as Bournemouth's David Brooks turns his foot trying to win possession, but he'll be OK to continue.

  19. Cherries in esteemed company

    Only Bournemouth and Liverpool from the top six are in action today.

    The Reds are currently top of the table as they lead Cardiff and Bournemouth will edge closer to a European spot if they can hold onto a 1-0 lead at Fulham.
