After their 2-1 loss at Turf Moor on Saturday, Fulham manager Claudio Ranieri says his team will not “give up” as they look set for a relegation battle.

Fulham lost 2-1 at Burnley as they conceded two unfortunate own goals from Joe Bryan and Denis Odoi after Andre Schurrle had given them the lead in the second minute.

Their 14th defeat of the Premier League season has left them five points off Premier League safety, but Ranieri has vowed to keep fighting.

“It’s unbelievable. Football is fantastic,” he told Sky Sports.
