Fulham defender Brede Hangeland insists they did not deserve defeat to Tottenham on Sunday.

Hangeland insists Fulham deserved more from their game against Tottenham on Sunday.

“We had a lot of chances,” Hangeland told fulhamfc.com. “To say that we were unlucky and should have had more to show is an understatement. I thought that we played really well, especially in the second-half.

“To be honest it is hard to believe that we didn’t come away with something – that is the general feeling of the squad. It was difficult for all of us to take, and it is something that following on from the home defeat against Everton it just adds to the frustration. Both were games we should have taken more from.

“On the day though, they [Tottenham] were just more clinical. We certainly had more chances, so that was obviously one of the big differences. We have to give them credit though because when opportunities did present themselves they made sure that they took them.

“Their goalkeeper, Brad Friedel, was man-of-the-match too, so that tells the story really. The guy may be 40, but on that performance it looks like he could play until he was 50 – he made some incredible saves.”
