Silva was pleased with the efforts of his players.
He stated: "Great effort from the boys, good spirit and organisation.
"Overall, I think we deserved the three points. We created most chances to win. Clearest chances, especially Raul [Jimenez] in the first half. Andreas [Pereira] too when Raul squared the ball.
"From Willian as well. We created enough. We showed quality, pushed them back and controlled the game. Good focus and reaction when we lost the ball to control players like Mateta and Edouard when they changed to 4-4-2. Eze is always a threat, a top, top player. Overall, if someone has to win the game and it should be Fulham because we were the best team on the pitch."
