Fulham relegated from Premier League, lose 4-1 to Watford

Fulham have joined Huddersfield as the second team to be relegated from the Premier League after the team lost 4-1 to Watford on Tuesday.

With Huddersfield relegated this past weekend with a record-tying six games to go, there is only one spot still to be decided. Cardiff is currently occupying the final relegation berth, five points from safety with seven games left.

It has been a tough season for Fulham, which started the campaign with optimism after American owner Shad Khan backed an offseason buying spree that made the club one of the biggest spenders in Europe.

Watford took the lead through Abdoulaye Doucoure in the 23rd minute and responded to a 33rd-minute equalizer by Ryan Babel by scoring three times in a 13-minute span from the 63rd, through Will Hughes, Troy Deeney and Kiko Femenia.

Fulham has 17 points from 33 games and a goal difference of minus 46 – the worst in the league.
