Under-pressure Chris Coleman accepts full responsibility for Fulham’s relegation plight and the Welshman does not care how the west Londoners get three points against Manchester City at Craven Cottage “as long as they do it.”

Coleman now describes the clash with fellow stragglers City as “the most important three points of our season.”

The Fulham manager witnessed his side crash to a 4-1 defeat at Everton on Good Friday before issuing words of warning about the future.

He said: “I don’t care how we win against City as long as we do. We will go for the win and it doesn’t matter how it happens.

“The responsibility is with me, solely on my shoulders because I am the manager. But I am 100% confident we will get the results we need.

“The lads are giving everything they have got but it is not happening for us. They know the situation we are in, so we can’t ask for any more.

“The next three points must come against Manchester City, that will be our biggest three points of the season.

“The pressure is really on ourselves, Aston Villa, Sheffield United, Wigan and Manchester City.

“So if we get one more win, any of us, it will give the bottom three too much to do.”

But Coleman is still looking up rather than down.

He said: “I still believe we can repeat last season’s 12th-place finish, that would make it an excellent season.”
