The Cottagers suffered another heavy defeat at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday, losing 5-0 to Manchester City which takes their goal difference for the season to minus 40.

However, the Fulham skipper is certainly not entertaining thoughts of relegation to the Championship just yet.

The Norwegian said: "We have quite a few games we know we can win. It is still doable and there is a belief we can do it.

"Time is running out a little bit and we need to pick up results. But if we are honest, we didn't expect to win at Man City.

"We were hoping for something but I suppose in the 'budget' there weren't many points here. We will have to get them elsewhere."

And Dutchman John Heitinga is another who is confident of avoiding the drop: "We need to fight to survive.

"There are still seven games to play and most of the games are at home, so we need to keep (getting) the points."

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
