Despite losing 2-0 to Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Sunday, manager Claudio Ranieri believes Fulham are improving.

Fulham lost their fourth game in five matches as they lost the London derby at Chelsea on Sunday thanks to goals from Pedro and Ruben Loftus-Cheek.

The defeat meant they are stuck at the bottom of the table after amassing just eight points in 14 matches.

But Ranieri, who took charge at the club last month, believes the club is going in the right direction performance wise.

“We made a mistake for the first goal and then in the second half we played much better,” Ranieri told Sky Sports.

“We created some chances and, of course, when you play against a big champion it’s something we had to do.

“We are improving. It’s a positive step but, of course, we have to react immediately.

“I am feeling good because the second half we created good problems for Chelsea and now we have to continue in this way.

“I have to change, to improve and work hard. I have very good players and I am very convinced we can do something good this season.”
