Fulham boss Mark Hughes felt his side deserved everything they got after their emphatic 4-0 FA Cup win over Tottenham.

The Cottagers breezed into the last 16, after they comfortably wrapped up victory at Craven Cottage.

Two early penalties from Danny Murphy, were followed by strikes from Brede Hangeland and Moussa Dembele.

And Hughes insisted that Fulham were well worth their win.

“I think it’s been coming, especially against Spurs,” said Hughes.

“We’ve played well on two occasions against Spurs and haven’t had any reward.

“We were on the front foot and forced errors from their back four.”

Hughes reserved a special mention for Murphy, who turned in a commanding display a day after signing a contract extension.

“Danny is a big influence on the pitch, a good captain and a good leader and we’re pleased he’s staying,” he added.

“You saw with his performance today that he gets on the ball and makes us tick. It was important that we secured his future.”
