The first managerial casualty has been recorded in the Premier League as relegation-threatened Fulham have sacked manager Slavisa Jokanovic.

The Cottagers have promptly appointed Claudio Ranieri as their new coach as they hope to halt their free fall on the log.

Fulham find themselves bottom of the table with just five points from 12 games and a negative goal difference of 20.

The abysmal form after gaining promotion has now led to the exit of Slavisa Jokanovic.
