Fulham defender Joachim Andersen was delighted with Fulham’s spirit in their win at Anfield last weekend and says the outstanding performance proves that the Whites can beat anyone in the Premier League.
Scott Parker’s side inflicted another damaging home defeat on Liverpool with Mario Lemina’s strike just before half time proving decisive. Andersen told Danish website Bold that, while the visitors could have had a more comfortable lead given the strength of their first half display, he was impressed with Fulham’s desire to hold onto their precious advantage.
“We played a great first half and had lots of chances. In the second half, it was incredible how we fought. You could see that everyone was working, and it’s just unbelievable. I have said many times now that we can beat all teams. We show every match that we are here to play and we produce a good match out of every showdown. So I’m just really happy.”
The Fuham skipper admitted that Lemina’s breakthrough came at the perfect time – and was proud of how his side dug in during the second half.
“It was good to score just before the break. We came in with a really good feeling and with the redemption from scoring. In the second half it was not our match and we did not play as we would like, but we just showed a great fighter’s will, and you need that sometimes too.”
Fulham now only remain in the relegation zone on goal difference level on points with Brighton in seventeenth place and one point behind Newcastle. They face another stiff test against league leaders Manchester City on Saturday night.
