Matchwinner Mario Lemina was delighted with Fulham’s win at Liverpool – and insists that the Whites ‘will fight to the end’ as they battle against the Premier League drop.
The on-loan Southampton midfielder’s first goal for the club secured a famous victory at Anfield and extended Fulham’s unbeaten run away from home to eight matches. The Gabon internnational was delighted with his side’s showing, which saw Scott Parker’s side dominate the first half against the defending champions.
Lemina told Fulham’s official website:
“We are going to fight until the end because we know where we are and we want to get out of the bottom three. From the beginning we have been together, and we will stay together until the end. Honestly, we are so happy. “We were like we must concentrate because it’s gonna be a tough game.
“We did well in the first half and we scored a goal after which we didn’t concede a goal. We could have it two, but I am very happy for the team for getting the three points. In my last game I missed a big chance and I was like I must score in this one and I was really focused on my shooting and when the ball went in, its good for the team.
“Of course, I know that Liverpool are not in their best form, we took our chance and we won. It was like the first leg at Cottage. Honestly, we knew what we had to do, we knew they were going to put pressure on us, and we defended so well.”
First of all well done Fulham every one of you were brilliant and that goes for Scott Parker who has proved me wrong about him, we now look like a premiership team a complete turn around from the one which started the season. I hope we can now get out of the relegation places and do everything we possibly can to sign all of our loan players on full contracts because I believe we have a very good side now. COYW
Like John B Scotty has also proved me wrong, I take my hat off to him and all the FFC Team.
We now seem to have a “team” who enjoy playing together, and the results are proving that. Keep it going if possible!
I have said all along that Scott Parker is doing a great job at Fulham and we are playing some very good football but the only one I don’t rate at all of the loan players is Loftus Cheek. He rarely contributes anything and his finishing is appalling. Be nice if we stay up to sign the other loan players but please note him.
Scott is doing a wonderful job. What I like about this team is there togetherness when it gets hard out there and they never give up.
Can I give a special mention to Harrison Reed this boy is out of this world and I think Southgate should take a long hard look at him.
Oh ye of little faith. What we have seen in the past few months is a team that should not be fighting relegation but a team that should be in the top 6 of the EPL. All credit to a great bunch of players and Scotty but also Stuart, Matt, Nathan and Rob who never get a mention.
