Jol's head the third on the block after horror season

MARTIN Jol looks set to be the third Premier League manager sacked this season after West Ham's 3-0 win condemned Fulham to a fifth consecutive league defeat.

Second half goals from Mohamed Diame and substitutes Carlton Cole and Joe Cole clinched the Hammers' first home win since the opening day of the season.

The result left Fulham struggling in the bottom three, and Jol battling to keep his job, with fans at Upton Park chanting "Jol out" and "You're getting sacked in the morning" well before the final whistle.

Elsewhere, Arsenal opened a seven-point lead at the top after Aaron Ramsey scored his 12th and 13th goals of the season in the 3-0 win at his former club, Cardiff. Second-last Sunderland drew 0-0 at Aston Villa, while former Stoke manager Tony Pulis's first game in charge of bottom-of-the-ladder Crystal Palace ended in a 1-0 defeat at Norwich

Newcastle beat West Brom 2-1, while Everton crushed Stoke 4-0.
