Super-sub Manor Solomon was the hero again as his superb strike earned Fulham a point following a 1-1 draw with Wolverhampton Wanderers.

After replacing Bobby De Cordova-Reid at half-time, Solomon curled in from the edge of the box to score for a third consecutive substitute appearance, only the 19th time it has happened in Premier League history.

Wolves had dominated the first half and took a deserved lead through Pablo Sarabia's first Premier League goal, a neat finish from Raul Jimenez's knockdown. 

But Marco Silva's half-time changes made a difference and Fulham might have taken all three points had Jose Sa not saved spectacularly from Carlos Vinicius in the dying moments.

Fulham extend their unbeaten run to four matches and move on to 39 points, two behind fifth-placed Newcastle United and three off Tottenham Hotspur in fourth. Impressively, only Manchester United, with 23, have won more points since the Premier League resumed than Fulham's 20.

There was a sour note for the Cottagers, though, in that Joao Palhinha received his 10th yellow card of the season, meaning he will now be suspended for their next two fixtures, London derbies against Brentford and Arsenal

Wolves remain in 15th on 24 points, four points above 18th-placed West Ham United, but Julen Lopetegui's side have played one match more than each of the bottom three.

Bumper action on Saturday

The teams beneath Wolves are in all action on Saturday, with huge matches at both the top and bottom of the table.

Arsenal can pile the pressure on Manchester City and go five points clear if they win at Leicester City in one of four 15:00 GMT matches, two-and-a-half hours before Man City’s fixture at AFC Bournemouth.

At the other end, Everton can move four points above the relegation zone and above Wolves with a win over Aston Villa, with Sean Dyche looking to become the first permanent manager in the club’s history to win his first three home league matches without conceding.

The bottom two go head-to-head in a massive duel as Leeds United host Southampton, while the day ends with Crystal Palace hosting a Liverpool side looking to bounce back from UEFA Champions League disappointment in midweek.
