Alfie Mawson is out until September after knee surgery, while Dennis Odoi serves the final game of a suspension.

It was Fulham's ambition that again exposed them, this time in the 79th minute when Aaron Wan-Bissaka won possession, countered and played in Zaha, who went to round Fabri and instead finished underneath him.

Fellow new recruit Max Meyer is not yet match fit, while Scott Dann, Connor Wickham and Jonny Williams are all out.

Ghana worldwide Jeffrey Schlupp got his season off to a glorious start with a goal in Crystal Palace's Premier League opener against new boys Fulham on Saturday.

Slavisa Jokanovic has realised the need for new faces, and heavy recruitment has only raised the level of anticipation.

Before the second goal, the Terriers had hit a post through Steve Mounie's header, but it was to be Sarri's and Chelsea's day. But I think we did have a lot of unlucky situations.

Having absorbed much of Fulham's pressure, Palace punished rare lapses in intensity and concentration to score toward the end of each half through Jeffrey Schlupp and then Wilfried Zaha.

Palace manager Roy Hodgson was delighted with his team's second-half performance as the visitors controlled the game after the break.

"We've made a great investment in the transfer market and I'm hoping we'll see an immediate benefit".

Fulham's American owner Shahid Khan - who has tabled a £600million pound bid to buy Wembley Stadium - sanctioned spending big with the likes of highly-rated Ivory Coast midfielder Jean-Michael Seri as the London club return to the Premier League after a four year hiatus. "We feel we're ready".
