Fulham relegated from Premier League after defeat at Watford

Watford 4-1 Fulham

Fulham have been relegated from the Premier League with five games still to play after being hammered by Watford at Vicarage Road.

The Cottagers needed to avoid defeat to put off their inevitable demotion for another week and were level at half-time, Ryan Babel having equalized after Abdoulaye Doucoure‘s stunning opener for the Hornets.

However, second-half goals from Will Hughes, Troy Deeney and Kiko Femenia condemned them to an immediate return to the Championship.

Fulham spent more than £100m on 12 new players last summer but the quality has been lacking all season and they will be playing alongside fellow relegated side Huddersfield next season.
