Fulham saw their chances of Premier League survival suffer another blow on Friday night when they went down 3-1 to West Ham United at the London Stadium, and after the contest angry fans demanded the removal of an important man.

The Cottagers headed across the capital eight points adrift of safety, but things looked brighter for them when Ryan Babel fired them in front against the Hammers, just three minutes into the match.

Fulham continued to play some nice stuff in the early stages of the encounter but couldn’t find a second goal, and were made to pay for that.

If things were not bad enough for the Cottagers, they got even worse on the half hour when West Ham levelled through a controversial goal when Javier Hernandez scored with his hand, which wasn’t seen by the referee.

Claudio Ranieri’s men conceded a second as half time approached, and then the game was beyond Fulham when Michail Antonio made it 3-1 just before the final whistle.

The former Chelsea and Leicester City manager only took over in the hot seat at Craven Cottage in November, but the 67-year-old has failed to pull the Cottagers out of trouble, and even though they still have 11 matches left, the writing looks on the wall for them as far as staying up is concerned, and their supporters appear to have had enough.

Ranieri has struggled to win over the Fulham faithful, with his questionable treatment of popular players such as Ryan Sessegnon, and with results not really improving in his tenure in West London, the relationship between the Italian and fans is becoming ever more strained.

Many Cottagers supporters took to social media after the defeat to West Ham to voice their frustrations with the manager, with plenty demanding that he leaves as soon as possible.
