After the match between Watford and Fulham this morning, 3/4, the Premier League 2018/19 identified the second name to play in the Championship.
As a guest of Watford at Round 33 of the Premier League, Fulham tried to play immediately after the opening whistle to aim for 3 points. However, the ambition of Craven Cottage team was soon chilled when Doucoure opened the score for Watford in the 23rd minute.
Just 10 minutes later, Babel rekindled hope for Fulham with a 1-1 equalizer. But that is all the visitors can do in this match. By the second half, Hughes (63 ‘), Deeney (69’) and Kiko (75 ‘) respectively scored to help Watford win the final 4-1.
With this result, Fulham stalled at 19th place in the league with 17 points after 33 games. Inferior to ranked 17th is Burnley 16 points, despite winning all 5 rounds of the season, Fulham could not escape the group holding the red light.
Thus, after just one season back to the Premier League, Fulham will have to start the journey from the First Division in the 2019/20 campaign. Many fans feel sorry for Fulham when they have invested 100 million euros to buy rookies, many quality players such as Andre Schuerrle, Mitrovic, Ryan Babel, Ryan Sessegnon visit Craven Cottage at transfer periods.
Earlier, after Round 32, the Premier League determined that the first name to be relegated was Huddersfield. This team only won 14 points after 32 matches. According to statistics, this is the first time in 24 years, the Premier League has more than one team to relegate when the season has 5 more rounds to close the curtain.
