Fulham coach Marco Silva felt Fulham weren't good enough out of possession in our season finale defeat by Sheffield United.

His side actually had more chances than our hosts, but some clinical finishing secured a 4-0 victory for the Blades.

Asked if the celebrations following Monday’s title win were to blame, Silva replied: “This would be the easiest excuse, but I don’t like to use this excuse. I know why we lost the game the way we did.

“It definitely wasn’t the way we wanted to finish the season. It was a tough result for us.

“With the ball, we did so many good things. Until they scored the first goal, we were the dominant team.

“The first time they went around our box… it was a good delivery, but you can’t head that ball completely free around our six-yard box. They punished us in that moment.

“Their second and third goals represent our performance this afternoon. We were too sloppy in certain moments.

“We were not good enough without the ball. We were not aggressive enough, most of the challenges they won.

“We have to analyse again and prepare our football club for the next season.”

Attentions of course now turn to preparations for the 2022/23 Premier League campaign – one that Silva hopes everyone can look back on admirably.

“We have to be proud of ourselves, and in one year’s time I want us to be proud of ourselves again,” he stated. “We know it will be a huge challenge, but in 12 months’ time we have to be proud of ourselves again.

“And the work starts right now.”
