Defeat to Burnley at Craven Cottage on Monday night confirmed Fulham’s fate as they joined Sheffield United and West Brom in dropping into the Championship next season.
They face a Southampton side who are now assured of safety and looked a different team with top scorer Danny Ings back in the side in the win over Crystal Palace in midweek.

Southampton vs Fulham is scheduled for a 3pm BST kick-off on Saturday, May 14, 2021.

Southampton vs Fulham team news
Ralph Hasenhuttl must decide whether to start Danny Ings again so soon after his goalscoring return from injury against Palace in midweek, while Jan Bednarek is a doubt after being forced off in that match.
For Fulham, Mario Lemina is ineligible to face his parent club while Scott Parker could give playing time to some of the fringe players who are likely to play a more prominent role back in the Championship next season.
Southampton vs Fulham prediction
Much for Saints will depend on Danny Ings – Hasenhuttl has admitted they are a different side with the England striker in it. If he is ready to go again, it’s hard to see anything but a home win.
