Scott Parker‘s side, who have managed just one win so far this season, host Everton this weekend before facing Leicester, Manchester City and Liverpool.
It is a daunting run for a team already in a fight to stay up this season, but Areola is confident he and his back four are starting to gel and that Fulham are prepared.
“We’ll be ready,” said the French goalkeeper. “We are working very hard every day, nobody can see that but only we can feel that we are working very hard. We will be prepared. The gaffer will not have to talk about the names or the games, we’ll be ready for the fight and the challenge.
“We had lots of new players, we had to get our time together to stick and have the same objective. We are improving and we can see every game that we are not conceding as much as the beginning. It is about mentality, we are on the right way.
“The season is long, we had tough games, conceded goals, but I think we did lots of positive things. We have to keep these and move forward, move forward and be strong together.”
