With Fulham struggling slightly more than Southampton in the Premier League battle of 2018/19, some fans have been watching developments at Craven Cottage with interest.

Although real football takes a rest and plays second fiddle to the November international break with friendlies and Nations League games taking precedence, when the lull is over we return to action against Fulham and whilst manager Mark Hughes remains firmly in place at St Mary’s Stadium, Fulham unceremoniously parted company with Slavisa Jokanovic earlier this week despite him leading them to promotion and they have replaced him with one time Premier League winning manager Claudio Ranieri.

The Tinkerman has the break now to work with most of his squad and if Leicester are anything to go off, he’ll have them tightening up at the back, and quick on the front foot when it comes to the counter-attack and some of their players I imagine will lap up that type of football.

What it means for us is open to debate, but we’ll be hoping the first team group have taken confidence from the Watford showing and that they keep their anger at the result and put it right.
