Fulham Marco Silva was pleased to see Fulham on the right end of another impressive scoreline, despite not being at their best against Birmingham City.

As was the case at the weekend, the Whites triumphed 6-2 at Craven Cottage – leaving their Head Coach feeling satisfied.

“Very good result for us,” Silva stated in his post-match presser. “Fantastic score again, [but] was not our best performance.

“For us as a team, and for me as a manager, even if we don’t perform at our best level, we showed the capacity to create chances, score goals, and to have some very good attacking moments and show our quality.

“The players understand for this game the ways we want to attack our opponent. Of course, moments that you are winning 4-1, 5-2, I expect to control the ball better, manage the ball better, move the ball quicker, make them run back to the ball.

“The changes I made during the match were to control the ball better. For all these games in a row, we have not enough time to rest in between matches.

“If you have better control of the ball during the game you can rest during some matches with these kind of scores.”

Having been 4-0 down, Birmingham briefly threatened to claw their way back into the match with a goal either side of half-time.

Fulham responded well with another two of our own, but Silva was disappointed with the manner of those let in.

“We cannot concede the two goals in the way that we do,” he explained. “In some moments we should play our way, our game.

“The other times, we have to play the other part of the game. We have to be a bit more ugly, a bit more aggressive.

“The way we concede the second goal, the first goal as well; we have to improve in these kinds of situations.”
