Fulham coach Marco Silva addressed the press to preview Saturday’s fixture against Burnley at Turf Moor.

With the press conference falling on Transfer Deadline Day, naturally a lot of the questions revolved around any potential incomings on the final day of the window.

“It’s deadline day. For me, we had a session and we prepared for the Burnley game and this is the most important thing,” said Marco when asked.

“Behind-the-scenes, the Club are trying to do something, let’s see what is going to happen.”

Marco also provided an update on his injury list: “For Saturday’s match, we’re going to be without Issa.

“Issa Diop got a hamstring issue and he’s going to be out for sure for the next game. Him and Raul, Harry Wilson and Adama Traore.”

It hasn’t been long since we last faced Burnley, a difficult afternoon at Craven Cottage and Marco claims there are lessons to take from the game.

“We had a very good first half against them. We didn’t score but we had a very good first half.

“The second half, the way we started was completely opposite and they scored an early goal in the second half and of course it was more difficult for us to go.

“Of course, we analyse, we need the players to see some important moments too, like we do with all teams to prepare the players well for the game.

“It's always difficult to go away from home and play against Burnley.

“It’s an important game for us and we really know it’s an important game for them as well.

“Any game they have, they see it as an opportunity to start to get more points and for us it’s really important.”

Fulham set the record for most shots taken in a single match in the Premier League this season on Tuesday night but were unable to get the goal that could have seen us secure the three points.

“It’s something that we work and are working on, and we can work even more,” said Marco, when asked about finishing in training.

“After comes the individual talent of each player. I really believe if we keep working hard, then we will be in the right direction to improve these types of things.

“It’s important that the individual talent makes the right decisions as well on the pitch.

“I think both of these have to be together, yes, but we have worked and will keep working on these situations.”
