Monday’s 2-0 defeat to Burnley marked a sad day for Fulham fans as relegation to the Championship was confirmed.

With the pressure undoubtedly off Fulham, we could see a completely different display from Parker’s side who have struggled in front of goal for most of the season.
Southampton will be looking to put a smile on the face of the fans that are watching from home today. The return of top goal scorer Ings on Monday saw Saints secure their first win in five games against Crystal Palace.
