Fulham’s troubles, Manchester United’s resurgence: Talking points from Matchday 26

Matchday 26 of the Premier League served us a generous portion of drama and excitement.

The defending champions Manchester City thrashed Chelsea 6-0, while Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur continued their strong assault on the title.

Huddersfield Town’s dismal run of form continues, while Cardiff City pulled off a stunning late win to end an emotionally draining week.

Here are five talking points from Matchday 26 of the 2018/19 Premier League campaign.

#5 No more Ranieri magic for Fulham

It seems as if we have seen enough of Fulham, who are almost destined to go down this season, despite appointing Claudio Ranieri earlier this campaign.

The former Leicester City boss has failed to guide the Cottagers out of the relegation scrap, and Saturday’s defeat to Manchester United means they are now seven points adrift of safety.

And with the Londoners due to face Manchester City, Chelsea and Liverpool within their next six league games, it’s highly unlikely that Ranieri will manage a miraculous turnaround as Fulham brace themselves for Championship football next season.
