Wolves did not go without a fight, they pushed on and thought they had snatched a point from the encounter when Hwang Hee-chan converted a penalty in the 75th.

But Willian again scored from the penalty spot in the 94th minute to seal a win for the hosts in the five-goal thriller.

Fulham have scored 13 times in 13 league games, and with the win they climb to 14th place on the table while Wolves are in 12th, both sides having 15 points each.
