Roy Hodgson says Fulham were flawless as they dismantled Burnley at Craven Cottage to climb to ninth in the league last night.

The Fulham manager said the key to the result was Fulham’s hard work and constant pressing.

I thought the victory lay in the hard work and the quality of our defending. We gave them very little time and space to play and we used the ball wisely.

We got everything right tonight – the defending and attacking – and on a night like that, we would have been a tough nut to crack for any team.

It was really good to see David [Elm] score. He’s been a bit of a revelation. At the time he came in we had a lot of strikers, but he has moved up the pecking order and deserves to be where he is.

We will attack the FA Cup. But I’m not going to change by mind about the Europa League. My priority is still the league and the FA Cup.
