Fulham are now 9/4 in bwin’s Premier League relegation odds following their 5-1 thrashing by Arsenal at Craven Cottage on Sunday.
Andre Schurrle cancelled out Alexandre Lacazette’s opener before the break but the Gunners punished the struggling Cottagers in the second half.
Lacazette, Aaron Ramsey and a Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang double made it five games without a win for the promoted side in the top flight, who sit 17th on five points.
Manager Slavisa Jokanovic said: “My observation is mixed. We played the first 45 minutes well, created chances and gave them questions. But the second half they scored very easy goals. We opened all the doors.
“We’re showing so many weaknesses for the level we are at at the moment, defensively. We need to improve quickly on this.”
Newcastle are 2/1 to go down after squandering an excellent opportunity to pick up their first win of the season after Manchester United staged a stirring comeback at Old Trafford.
Goals from Kenedy and Yoshinori Muto inside the first 10 minutes stunned the Red Devils, who clawed a goal back with 20 minutes left through Juan Mata’s free-kick.
Anthony Martial levelled in the 76th minute before Alexis Sanchez headed in the winner in stoppage time to ease the pressure on United manager Jose Mourinho.
The Magpies are now second-bottom on two points and manager Rafael Benitez said: “I think we did so well for 70 minutes. It’s a pity.”
Terriers show more bite
Huddersfield moved off the bottom of the table following a 1-1 draw with Burnley at Turf Moor but both sides remain in the bottom four in the Premier League relegation odds.
The Terriers fell behind to Sam Vokes’ excellent header for the Clarets, who are 2/1 to go down, but Christopher Schindler nodded in the equaliser to earn his team just a third point of the season.
Boss David Wagner is more sure than ever that Huddersfield – 3/10 for the drop – will secure the wins and points they need to stay out of trouble.
The German said: “I’m more than confident because our performances in the last weeks are good, sometimes like this one very good. We look brave, we’ve shown great unity on the grass and in the stands. So we have everything apart from the first win.”
Cardiff dropped back to the bottom following a 1-0 defeat to Tottenham, Eric Dier with the winner, with the Bluebirds finishing the game with 10 men after Joe Ralls was sent off.
The Welsh side also have just two points and Neil Warnock, whose side are the 11/50 favourites for relegation, told the club’s official website: “I was really proud to be their manager.
“They stood up to it, grew into the game and played some good football, after a quiet first 15 minutes. When the first goal went in, a lot of people may have thought that the floodgates would open. That didn’t happen and we had one or two decent chances.”
Brighton eased out to 11/2 after ending a five-match winless run in the league by beating West Ham 1-0 on Friday night, Glenn Murray with the winner at the Amex Stadium.
South-coast rivals Southampton are now 4/1 following a 3-0 reverse to Chelsea which left them winless at St Mary’s this season.
