The Cottagers went down 2-0 at Liverpool on Sunday afternoon and are last in the table, although there is little to separate the bottom seven sides

Another weekend and another defeat has left Fulham in a precarious position in the Premier League table.

This time it was a 2-0 reverse at Anfield, albeit the Cottagers were unlucky to not find the net, which makes it six losses in a row and no league win since August for Slavisa Jokanovic’s men.

It is little surprise, then, that they are just 4/7 (1.57) with SportPesa to make an immediate return to the Championship along with 1/2 (1.50) Cardiff City.

Whilst Fulham do prop up the Premier League table, Cardiff are just three points above them after claiming their second victory of the season with a dramatic 2-1 win over Brighton on Saturday.

That makes it two wins from their last four games and whilst the Bluebirds will have their work cut out to survive, that will surely buoy them when club football returns after the Nations League interlude.

SportPesa’s 5/12 (1.42) favourites to go down, though, are Huddersfield after the West Yorkshire outfit avoided relegation by the skin of their teeth last season and sit 19th this time around.

The Terriers were perhaps unlucky to not beat West Ham on Saturday afternoon but, like Cardiff, will have their hopes up after the international break thanks a 1-0 win over Fulham on November 5 gave them a first league win in 15 games.

However, the race to avoid the drop is certainly far from over and currently just four points separate Fulham in 20th and Newcastle in 14th thanks to back-to-back wins for the Magpies.

A Salomon Rondon double gave Rafa Benitez’s struggling side a surprise win over high-flying Bournemouth just seven days after a 1-0 success against Watford, and are now out at 3/1 (4.0) to get relegated.

Burnley are 5/4 (2.25) after failing to recreate their form of last season, whilst Southampton – winless in eight with only four goals to their name in that time – could prove to be a value bet at 15/4 (4.75).
