Comments:

League position: 19th Fulham equalled their club record of three consecutive wins in the Premier League that they last achieved in March 2012. The Whites had now kept clean sheets in their last three games in the Premier League; as many as they had kept in their previous 41 games in the division. They had now won all five home games in this Premier League season against the other teams currently in the bottom six of the table.

Comments:

League position: 18th Cardiff City had now lost eight of their last ten games in the Premier League. The Bluebirds failed in their attempt to win consecutive away games in the top division for the first time since February 1957. With two games to play, they had now equalled their club record for the most defeats in a season in the top division; also 23 in 1956-57 in League Division One. Neil Warnock had still yet to win a league game at Fulham in his managerial career (played 11, lost eight).
