Fulham boss Scott Parker said that he’s proud of his team for how they performed, despite falling 2-0 to Chelsea in the South West London derby.

A goal early in each half for the hosts was enough to secure them the three points. The Whites were unable to claw their way back into game, despite a spirited effort.

“We’ll try and win four games now, that’s the aim,” Parker said. “I’m proud of the performance, the courage we’ve shown against a top side. We knew the challenge. Over the last few weeks, we fell a little bit short, maybe it’s the pressure.

“I thought we were back to where we needed to be to try and win games in this division, but there’s no denying, in certain moments we lacked in certain areas.

“I do believe we can win games with that performance. Chelsea conceded one shot on target against a Real Madrid team, they have an abundance of quality. There is no other option, it’ll start on Monday night, we’ll go and try and win a game against Burnley. That’s our main focus.”

“We faced a lot of challenges last year with this group and got promoted. I asked the team to focus on today, and give their best, and until the curtain comes down, that will always be the case.”

One positive from the defeat was a Premier League debut for Fabio Carvalho.

“Fabio came off the bench, he’s been nothing short of brilliant in training,” Parker admitted. “The last 10 days, he really went about it and that’s the reason he came on.

“He settled in, but like all young players, he was probably on the fringes of things, but I felt he could bring something – score us a goal, bring a little bit of magic. I make decisions that I feel is best for the dynamic of the team.”

The Head Coach also revealed that Harrison Reed missed out through an ankle injury.

“Harrison Reed has picked up an ankle injury, hopefully it’s not too bad. He may miss the next game as well.”
