Fulham boss Marco Silva: We didn't deserve Liverpool defeat

Fulham boss Marco Silva insists their 4-3 defeat at Liverpool was undeserved.

Trailing 3-2, Liverpool equalised through Wataru Endo on 87 minutes and then a minute later won the game via Trent Alexander-Arnold.

Silva later said: "I'm really proud of them, definitely. The way we played, the way we matched Liverpool. The way we showed the spirit.

"It was great, great goals every time. Normally that doesn't happen. They scored four great goals from long distance. But the way we reacted every time from those situations. Even we were able to lead the score 3-2 for part of the second half.

"Of course I am proud. We didn't deserve the result, definitely in my opinion. Even if you look to the first half of course we were much more controlled, won the ball from Liverpool. They didn't create many chances in the first half, apart from the great goals they scored I don't remember one clear chance from them.

"Second half for the 3-2 yes they had a counter-attack with Darwin Nunez hitting the crossbar. From that moment they didn't create anything more until we scored to go 3-2. The game was really under control in that situation.

"We didn't deserve the fourth goal against us. When the cross comes in from Darwin [Nunez] Bobby [De Cordova-Reid] challenges the ball in the air and [Konstantinos] Tsimikas, there is a fall on him. The referee should see. But I don't want to go in this direction, I really want to talk about the positives from the game.

"We are taking many [positives] but unfortunately not points. But this is something we will take into the future.

"This is our image as a team. We want to play in a certain way and build something in this football club. We have to express ourselves on the pitch and the way we did it was really good.

"Unfortunately for us we deserved more but we didn't take."
