LONDON -- Pajtim Kasami and Steve Sidwell both scored with spectacular volleys as Fulham came from behind to beat Crystal Palace 4-1 Monday in the Premier League.

Palace took an early lead through Adrian Mariappa in the seventh minute, but Kasami brought Fulham level with one of the best goals of the season so far when he controlled a long ball with his chest and volleyed in with his next touch from the right edge of the area.

Sidwell then added another highlight goal just before halftime when a free kick was blocked by the Palace wall and bounced into his path, and he unleashed another volley from outside the area past goalkeeper Julian Speroni.

Dimitar Berbatov headed in the third in the 50th and Philippe Senderos added the last with another volley from close range five minutes later.
