Fulham manager Marco Silva admitted it was two points dropped at Turf Moor following a dramatic draw with Burnley.

His side had been cruising at 2-0 before two second-half goals – including one in added time – cancelled out the lead.

“There’s frustration of course in our dressing room,” Marco explained. “It’s disappointing the way we lost the two points, and it was clear we lost two points.

“Until the moment they made it 2-1, we were the best team on the pitch, definitely. Great saves from their goalkeeper kept them in the game really.

“It was a good performance from ourselves. We were in control of almost everything on the pitch, but football is like that. We cannot switch off, we cannot be naïve in some moments like we were.

“I know that a goal always has an impact on the game and boosts the crowd. We were punished by mistakes from ourselves.”

While the goals given away caused question marks to be raised over some of his players, the gaffer refused to point fingers.

“We were punished by mistakes from ourselves. It’s not the first time it’s happened, unfortunately, for us this season.

“The way we conceded the second goal, we have to be much more solid in those moments. The way we defend our box and the way we defend our right-hand side, in those situations we have to be much stronger.

“It’s not about individual mistakes – I take responsibility. I’m the coach and of course we’re going to work on it and improve.”

Deadline day signing Armando Broja was brought off the bench for his debut, but Marco reported that the striker took a kick to the ankle on his debut.

“It’s too early (to know the extent of any injury). We’re going to assess him and see how he is. In that moment, he felt he could continue on the pitch and I kept him on.”
