  1. Good night

    And on that note we shall see you all back on Saturday for four more Premier League games.

    Sleep well.

  2. 60 up

    West Ham 3-1 Fulham

    Antonio

    Fulham have become just the fourth side in the Premier League era to concede at least 60 goals after 27 matches of a single campaign; indeed, only Barnsley (63 in 1997-98) conceded more than Fulham’s 61 so far this season.

  3. 'The referees guess a lot of the time'

    Cardiff 1-5 Watford

    Cardiff City

    Nei LWarnock

    More from Cardiff manager Neil Warnock speaking to BBC Match of the Day: "I thought we had come back into the game well at 1-0 then to get a penalty like that not given. Troy Deeney and all their staff told us it was a stonewall penalty!

    "Whether they are educated correctly I don't know but it's a clear penalty. I had to try and get it out of their [Cardiff players] minds at half-time. The injustice of it! They [Watford] are a good side but we didn't half get some things tonight...

    "When everyone from the opponents tell you and deep down I think all the officials knew really. I don't understand at this level why things like that can't be given. There will be mistakes but they will get much more right with VAR. I think the referees guess a lot of the time and you can't do that at this level.

    "People know if we go in at 1-1 then it's a different ball game. The players were really down at half-time. I have never seen that. We can't allow that to happen. We have quite a few good sides to play between now and the end of the season. It affected me too."

    Any more for any more?

  5. 'We have to be stronger mentally'

    Cardiff 1-5 Watford

    Nei LWarnock

    More from Cardiff boss Neil Warnock: "I had to calm the players down at half-time. It was just so obvious. I have never experienced anything like that really. It wasn't even a difficult decision.

    "I have come to you first and calm down. The goals were giveaways and pathetic really. We will keep fighting. We are going to have games like these where we play against good teams. They are a good side but it doesn't half help when you get decisions going for you like that!

    "We have to be stronger mentally. We can't let decisions like that affect our game and collapse like that. We have to grit our teeth and come back with another answer."

  6. 'It will be a long night'

    Cardiff 1-5 Watford

    Cardiff City

    Cardiff City captain Sol Bamba: "It was very difficult to take. We are a team that show resilience and fight and we didn't show that today. It's not like us and it's very disappointing.

    "It is always going to be something to say against the referee but I don't like looking for excuses. It was a clear penalty but I don't think that is a reason we lost the game.

    "At half-time we were disappointed. If we are honest with ourselves, the first 20-25 minutes wasn't like us. We came out in the second half and did well to put that right but conceded the second goal and it was always going to be difficult after that. It wasn't like us.

    "It is difficult to put a finger on it. We are full of confidence and have had a couple of good results. We came into the game and wanted to do well but for some reason we couldn't get going. It will be a long right but we will go back to training and get ready for Tuesday."

  7. 'You shouldn't be refereeing'

    FT: Cardiff 1-5 Watford

    Cardiff City

    Simon Hooper

    Cardiff City manager Neil Warnock speaking to Sky Sports: "We got mauled in the end. It looks bad in the paper. I have never seen the players like that at half-time.

    "Everyone was talking about the penalty that hasn't been given. Nobody can understand it. Decisions like that change the game. I can't understand why it wasn't given it's a blatant penalty.

    "It's no excuse for conceding five but everyone in the game knows it changes things. The referee is in a great position so I just can't understand it. If you can't give decisions like that at this level you shouldn't be refereeing."

  8. I see their future in the Championship

    West Ham 3-1 Fulham

    Fulham’s nine London derby defeats in a row is the longest ever such losing run in Football League history by any London side.

  9. 'I see my future in midfield'

    West Ham 3-1 Fulham

    West Ham United

    Declan Rice

    West Ham midfielder Declan Rice speaking to Sky Sports: "The manager has been on at me all season to protect the back four.

    "I've been playing so much in midfield now that that's where I want to see my future. I'd love to play in that holding role but there's still much to improve on."

  10. 'We got the rub of the green'

    West Ham 3-1 Fulham

    West Ham United

    West Ham captain Mark Noble on Sky Sports: "We started terribly and should have been 3-0 down inside 10 minutes. But we dealt with it, as soon as they scored we took control of the game. I've seen the first goal, it was handball and we have had the rub of the green there.

    "Everyone came here expecting us to win but Fulham are a good side."

  11. 'VAR is very important'

    West Ham 3-1 Fulham

    Fulham

    Claudio Ranieri

    More from Fulham boss Claudio Ranieri: "We created very good chances and it was a pity that the referee didn't see the handball. VAR is very important for next season.

    "It is much better with VAR, I understand that it is not easy to adapt but it is slowly, slowly getting better.

    "West Ham were very dangerous on set plays but we controlled the match in the second half.

    "We were solid but we didn't have a chance to score again. Time is running out but we never give up, we must be confident and we must dream and continue to fight."

  13. 'When other teams have more quality it's very tough'

    West Ham 3-1 Fulham

    Fulham

    Fulham manager Claudio Ranieri, speaking to Sky Sports: "It's unbelievable. We started very well. They were very dangerous on corners and it was a big pity the referee was covered by players and didn't see the first goal was handball. Afterwards West Ham moved the ball more quickly. I don;'t know if we were scared. Why? Continue to play. The second half was better.

    "At half-time I tried to put more physicality in the middle with Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa and with Lazar Markovic to close and attack much better because Ryan Sessegnon lost a lot of easy balls and I prefer to change him.

    "We are always speaking about being concentrated and playing with determination but also we needed some luck. But we never give up. We concentrate now for the next match. It's important to recover very soon the energy and psychologically as well.

    "I tell my players if we fight, maybe we can win. If we don't fight, we have lost before we play. It's important to stay together and continue to try our best.

    "I change so many times, five at the back, four, to try to find a solution. But when the other teams have more quality and more experience it's very tough. We continue to try to find the solution, to see who will make a good impression."

  14. Post update

    West Ham United

    West Ham boss Manuel Pellegrini: "Pablo Zabaleta has a pain in his back so he could not continue. Changing a right-back is not a substitution you want to use."

  15. Get Involved

    Mark Davey: Before Fulham fans complain about Chico Handball. There were two clear penalty shouts for West Ham with Rico pushing Chico. VAR solves both.

    Scott: Fulham need to get big Sam in.

    Richard Cumiskey: Fulham. Are. Doomed.

  16. Get Involved

    #bbcfootball or text 81111 (UK only)

    Matthew Hughes: Both Cardiff and Fulham are nothing but Championship teams. Cardiff have a championship manager and Fulham have one or two half decent players.

    Adam Humphries: Can see this being Warnock's last season at Cardiff whether they stay up or get relegated. This season seems to be taking it's toll on him judging by his interviews.

  17. 'Fulham must show resilience'

    West Ham 3-1 Fulham

    Matthew Upson

    Former West Ham defender on BBC Radio 5 live

    Without that kind of a scrapping mentality, from this position I don't think Fulham have a chance (of staying up).

    They're not going to be able to play their way out of it. They have to show that resilience, that dominance physically, both in the air and on the ground.

    It's very much shadow play with Fulham. It does look like they've done a lot of work on shape, but they're not actually going and impacting the ball, and without doing that you're just going to get played around in the Premier League.

  18. 'We started the game asleep'

    West Ham 3-1 Fulham

    West Ham United

    Pellegrini

    West Ham boss Manuel Pellegrini: "We started the game asleep, the first 10 minutes was unbelievable. After that we played a very good game. We scored three goals and had three or four clear chances.

    "It was a complete game - apart from the first 10 minutes. You never know the reason, maybe we were distracted. The important thing is we changed our attitude.

    "From my position I couldn't see the handball, I have seen it since and it is handball. Nobody saw it very clearly at the time, there was not too many complaints. I don't think that the goal decided the game.

    "I never complained when we didn't have results because I don't like excuses but it is very difficult when you have eight or nine injuries but now you can see that we have players coming back."

  19. 'To win like we did was outstanding'

    FT: Cardiff 1-5 Watford

    Watford

    Watford manager Javi Gracia: "It was a very good performance. To win here is not easy. To win like we did today was outstanding. I am very proud of all my players.

    "Playing away we are getting good results. We knew it would be a hard game. They changed their shape and they tried to do more compact and defend better but we found the spaces and scored different goals - in counter-attack and in possession games,

    "Our players showed good qualities and scored lots of goals so I am happy. Before the game we knew it would be important to have mobility and attack the spaces.

    On Gerard Deulofeu's hat-trick: "It was important the three goals but in my opinion it was more important to assist after the three goals to be generous and pass it.

    On Cardiff's penalty shout: "I understand. They can be angry with that but I prefer to not say anything about that. We played very well, scored five goals and dominated the game. We deserved this victory. Now we focus on the next game and we try to do our best."

    Cardiff have now lost 100 games in the top-flight at home.
