Fulham matchwinner Lemina: I was scared facing Liverpool!

Fulham matchwinner Mario Lemina was delighted to help his teammates to victory at Liverpool.

Lemina admits the squad is bouncing as they push to get out of the dropzone.

He said, “We are happy. We are struggling at the moment and it is hard to be at the bottom of the league but we still believe in our quality and we showed in the first half we can play against a big opponent and in the second half we showed good character. It is three good points for us.

“Honestly I am not going to lie, I was scared because they need to win some games. But I was so confident in my team. We have showed in all the games we have played that we play good football and deserve to be higher in the league.

“In the last game I missed a big, big chance and I wanted to say I can score. It's a good goal because we win the game.

On what has changed, he continued: “I don't know. We are just working so hard. I think we deserve better than this. We got the luck that we…..sorry I am losing my [train of thought] I am so tired.

"It depends on us and the way we play the other games. If we play like that I think we will stay up."
