Martin Jol admitted his woeful Fulham team were lucky to be still in the Premier League after their fifth successive defeat at the hands of Liverpool.
They reached the 40-point mark with a draw at Villa Park on April 13 and have not picked up a point since. But other results mean it is impossible for Fulham to go down. Jol honestly said afterwards: “Sometimes you have to count your blessings. We were fairly happy to get to 40 points, but we couldn’t get the results to get to 46 or 47.”
