Scott Parker has admitted he "can't control" questions over his future and admits his future is "out of his hands" as his Fulham side languish at the bottom of the Premier League table.

The Cottagers have endured a torrid run since earning promotion back to the Premier League at the first attempt, taking just one point and conceding 14 goals in their first six games.

An opening day thrashing by Arsenal was followed by further defeats to Leeds, Aston Villa and Wolves, while Parker’s side were also humbled by Brentford in the fourth round of the Carabao Cup.

While a 1-1 draw against fellow strugglers Sheffield United last weekend offered brief respite and at least saw Fulham get a point on the board, the losing resumed on Saturday as goals from Jairo Riedewald and Wilfried Zaha saw Crystal Palace emerge 2-1 winners at Craven Cottage.

After spending plenty of cash in the transfer market, questions over Parker’s future were put to the rookie manager after the defeat to Palace, but he says he will front up and keep trying to get the results his side deserve to turn their slump around.
