Magath raps Fulham defending on Chelsea defeat

Fulham boss Felix Magath was upset with their defending for defeat to Chelsea.

Magath, who lost captain Brede Hangeland to a head injury in the first half, berated his side's defending after the interval and highlighted Chelsea's first goal as a particular low point.

"I was satisfied with the first half," he said.

"We had two or three good situations but I don't know what happened at half-time and it seems the players forgot to defend. It was for us a very big problem that our captain was injured and wasn't there in the second half.

"I don't know how difficult the injury to Brede Hangeland is and I hope he will come back and join us next week but we have to work on defending.

"I have seldom seen a goal like the first today. Schurrle takes the ball form near his own goal and runs the whole field and no-one tackles him. He can run 90 metres and score with no contact."
