Fulham helps PL survival bid by beating Sheffield United 1-0

LONDON (AP) — Fulham beat last-place Sheffield United 1-0 on Saturday to boost its own Premier League survival bid.

Ademola Lookman broke the deadlock in the 61st minute to take Fulham within three points of 17th-place Newcastle.

Lookman worked his way into the penalty area from the left-hand side before firing a low shot into the net.

It secured Fulham’s fourth win from 25 league games this season.
