Southampton sent Fulham to the foot of the Premier League table with an emphatic 3-0 victory at Craven Cottage on Saturday.
Mauricio Pochettino's men produced a magnificent second-half display to seal their first win at the home of the London club for over 66 years.
The result condemned Fulham to a fourth straight top-flight defeat and left Rene Meulensteen's side three points adrift of safety.
Southampton took the lead just after the hour mark as Adam Lallana marked his 250th appearance for the club with a goal.
From there, Fulham's resistance wilted, with Southampton's lead doubled after 70 minutes through Rickie Lambert's simple finish.
And Jay Rodriguez's capped off the win in fine style with a magnificent strike from the edge of the area following a superb counter-attack from the visitors.
Fulham, who handed debuts to new signings William Kvist and Lewis Holtby, spent much of the opening stages on the back foot and almost fell behind as Maarten Stekelenburg was forced into a reflex save after Steve Sidwell had turned Rodriguez's cross towards his own net.
The visitors continued to dictate play in the first half, but struggled to create any meaningful opportunities, Calum Chambers flashing a shot wide just before the 20-minute mark.
Meulensteen's men soon responded, though, and would have levelled if not for Artur Boruc, who produced a fine stop to keep out Brede Hangeland's close-range header.
Still, Southampton enjoyed the better of the play, midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin drawing another strong save from Stekelenburg before Maya Yoshida glanced a header wide.
Most of Fulham's threat came via striker Darren Bent, who was twice denied by Boruc shortly before the interval, first from a left-footed volley and then from a near-post effort after the on-loan Aston Villa striker had broken free of the Southampton defence.
Southampton brought on Jack Cork in place of Victor Wanyama at half-time, and the visitors almost broke the deadlock early in the second half as Schneiderlin's spectacular overhead kick flew just over the crossbar.
Lallana then tested Stekelenburg but Fulham failed to heed that warning, affording Lallana the space to put Southampton ahead after 64 minutes.
The England midfielder drilled home a superb left-footed finish after latching on to a perfectly placed through-ball from Lambert.
Southampton gained in confidence following the goal, Steven Davis and Schneiderlin both seeing goalbound efforts blocked.
And the inevitable second goal soon arrived as Lambert netted his eighth goal of the season.
Lambert had the simple task of slotting home from close range after Nathaniel Clyne's low cross had found the striker unmarked in the area.
Pochettino's team refused to take their foot off the gas, though, Rodriguez applying the gloss to a fine display 15 minutes from time, the ex-Burnley man cutting on to his right foot and curling past a despairing Stekelenburg and into the top corner.
