Fulham fell to another disappointing defeat on Saturday, as they were thumped 3-0 by Manchester United at Craven Cottage.
The result has left the club 19th in the Premier League table, seven points adrift of 17th-placed Newcastle United and eight behind 16th-placed Cardiff City.
Fulham have won just four times this season – beating Brighton and Hove Albion in January, Huddersfield in December, Southampton in November and Burnley in August.
Their season has been characterised by inconsistency, however. Their first win over Burnley was followed by a run of nine games without victory, including a thumping 5-1 loss to Arsenal, a 3-0 loss to Manchester City and a 4-2 beating by Cardiff City.

Hopes of a run of form were raised at the end of January, when the Cottagers fought back from 2-0 down to beat Brighton 4-2, but two successive losses, to Crystal Palace and United at an aggregate score of 5-0, have seen many consign the club to the drop.
And Fulham fans want manager Claudio Ranieri – appointed in November – sacked after another uninspiring performance.
just to show how bad we are, we are now 8 points behind cardiff, a team who has spent literally nothing… but neil Warnocks this awful manager #RANIERIOUT

I’m certain that CR has got the read on our predicament wrong. Our players are footballers, he hasn’t inherited Burnley (no offence). He has options going forward but feels that maths is the answer. More defenders=less losses. Wrong. He needs to go #RanieriOut @FulhamishPod

Remember when Ranieri took off a striker for a defender at 2-0 down. That was fun. #RanieriOut

I’m jealous of everyone. Cardiff’s heart, Southampton’s manager, Burnley’s defensive ability, even Huddersfield’s spirit. We’re so lost. Fair play to them all.

Can see why Leicester wanted Ranieri out. Absolute dinosaur tactically. Got to wonder what is going on in his head. #Ranieriout

The worst part about this season is seeing the guys who live and breathe our club are rotting on the bench. #RanieriOut
