Fulham are already relegated but have won all three of their matches since relegation back to the Championship was confirmed at the start of April and now face a difficult game at Wolverhamton on Saturday.

Fulham have yet to confirm who will be in charge next season, but Scott Parker feels his squad have at least been able to end an overall disappointing campaign with some positives to look back on.

"It's been a good few weeks, in terms of results and performances," he said.

"It's a difficult league to go and win three on the bounce and the players have done very well. We've shown the quality we have. "

Wolves can move a step closer to securing European football next season with victory over Fulham .

A seventh-place finish in the Premier League would be enough to qualify for next season's Europa League if Watford lose to Manchester City in the FA Cup final.

Wolves are seventh in the table, three points above Leicester, who face Manchester City on Monday Night Football.



Head to head

  • Fulham are winless in 14 league and cup games away to Wolves since a 4-0 victory in the second tier in April 1985 (D4, L10).


  • The Cottagers have lost three of their four Premier League games at Molineux, conceding twice in each of those defeats.



Fulham


  • Fulham could win four consecutive top-flight games for the first time since a five-match sequence from February to April 1966.


  • The Londoners have taken nine points from their last three Premier League fixtures - as many as in their previous 20 matches combined (W2, D3, L15).


  • They have also kept three successive clean sheets, more than in their previous 37 top-flight games.


  • A fourth successive shut-out would equal their club record in the top flight.


  • Ryan Sessegnon has scored in his last two league games against Wolves, though both of those matches were at Craven Cottage.


  • Aleksandar Mitrovic has been involved in 36.3% of Fulham's 432 total shots in the Premier League this season (127 shots, 30 chances created), the highest ratio of any player in the division.


Wolverhampton Wanderers


  • Wolves have lost six of their 11 league games against the teams in the bottom six prior to the latest round of matches, compared to just three defeats in 11 fixtures versus the top six.


  • If matches against the bottom six were excluded, they would be third in the table, behind only Liverpool and Manchester City.


  • Victory would give Wolves 57 points, the highest Premier League total by a newly-promoted club since Ipswich's haul of 66 in 2000-01.


  • A seventh-place finish would also be the best performance by top-flight newcomers since Ipswich ended fifth in 2001.


  • Nuno Espirito Santo's side are unbeaten in their last seven top-flight games at Molineux (W5, D2).


  • Diogo Jota has had a hand in seven goals in his last eight Premier League games, scoring four and assisting three - as many as he managed in his first 23 appearances.


  • Jota has scored seven goals in his last eight appearances at Molineux in all competitions.
