The team is at the bottom of the English Premier League table and they are just 13 points away from safety with seven matches to go.

Fulham is currently in the 19th position, out of 20 teams, of the English Premier League table. The team has 17 points thanks to four wins, five draws, and 22 losses.

And with seven matches left, the team is 13 points from safety, or they will face relegation to the Championship at the end of the season.

Even after losing 2-1 against Liverpool in the weekend’s fixture, midfielder Tom Cairney believes the team has improved under caretaker manager Scott Parker.

“The manager has only been in charge a couple of weeks, and I think you can see the turnaround in performances already,” Cairney said to RTÉ Sport.

“There is a better atmosphere around the club but obviously, we need results.”

“There is a better atmosphere, a better vibe around the training ground. It’s looking like we might not stay up, the points difference is massive and we are running out of games,” he added.

“I think there is a bigger picture and we have just got to build. It’s not the season we dreamed of in pre-season but this is football and these things happen.”

“I think the club has lost a little bit of what we had last season. It’s mad how quickly things can change,” he commented.

“For a number of reasons it didn’t go right. We spent a lot of money and stuff. The Premier League is tough, it’s the best league in the world for a reason and we are finding that out the hard way.”
