Khan was present at Selhurst Park to see his Fulham side claim a 4-1 win, and he hopes they can take inspiration from that success.
"I think, and have believed this for quite some time, that we have great players and some of those are new to Fulham and some of them have been here for a while," he told Sky Sports News.
"It was a break-out moment and I hope this now continues."
Khan admits he almost could not believe the volley from Pajtim Kasami against Palace, which many are already suggesting will be goal of the season.
"It was unbelievable and I kept looking for the replay on the video board and I had to go back in and see it on the television," he said. "It is one of those things did I really see what I saw?"
He also reiterated his backing for manager Martin Jol, adding: "He is the man for me.
"You have to keep in mind he is a very experienced guy and the start we have had, whether you're Martin Jol or any Fulham supporter, you're not happy and we can do better, and our players are a lot more talented and they proved that on Monday night."
Taking a wider view .... defensively Fulham were poor. Hangerland is way off the pace - surely injured? Senderos as ever only ever passes sideways or backwards and the 'spectacular bicycle kick' (as I read in one paper) looked a bit like he slipped. Richardson is never a proper left back an only marginally a Premiership player; Ruiz as ever flatters to deceive - does anyone know what his role is? (if so, please tell him). I'm expecting a tonking in front of the cameras on Saturday evening - Fulham are always good Sky fodder.- jackstumps
