Claudio Ranieri got off to a winning start with Fulham, who ended a six-match losing run with a 3-2 victory over Southampton.
Stuart Armstrong's first Southampton goal gave the visitors the lead at Craven Cottage before Aleksandar Mitrovic headed Fulham level on 33 minutes.
Andre Schurrle put the hosts in front just before half-time from Ryan Sessegnon's superb cross but Saints pulled level with Armstrong's second goal eight minutes after the break.
Mitrovic volleyed in Sessegnon's flick-on with 27 minutes remaining and Fulham hung for victory.
Ranier's side are bottom of the table, level on eight points with Cardiff City, in 19th place, and Southampton, a place better off.
