FULHAM were officially relegated from the Premier League on Monday night and they should expect little respite when they face Southampton at St Mary’s on Saturday.
The Cottagers fate was finally sealed in a limp 2-0 loss at home to Burnley, on a night where both of my bets banked.
That 18th defeat of a season of struggle confirmed Fulham’s inevitable relegation as their one-year stay in the top-flight ended with a whimper.
Southampton, meanwhile, made a strong start to the campaign but they have been unable to maintain their early-season form and as a result they are languishing in the lower echelons of the Premier League table.
Despite a supposed upturn in performances over the past few months, Fulham have now taken just one point from their last seven Premier League games.
That solitary point did come away at Arsenal, and Scott Parker‘s men also won away to Liverpool two months ago, but there can be no complaints regarding their relegation.
The Cottagers quite simply have not been good enough over the course of the campaign, and the 2-0 loss against Burnley at Craven Cottage this week was the final nail in the coffin.
Fulham knew that only a win would do, but goals from Ashley Westwood and Chris Wood in the final 10 minutes of the first half sealed a 2-0 victory for Sean Dyche‘s men.
In doing so, it means that the bottom three places have been wrapped up in the Premier League with at least three games still to play for the first time ever.
Fulham are now effectively playing for pride when they travel to Southampton and Manchester United, before concluding their season at home to Newcastle United
