Marco Silva insists there is much more to come from his Fulham side after the Whites’ goalless draw with Wolverhampton Wanderers at Molineux this afternoon.

The visitors were competitive once again for long spells against Bruno Lage’s outfit but spurned a glorious opportunity to take all three points when Aleksandar Mitrovic’s late spot-kick was saved by Jose Sa.

Silva told his post-match press conference:

“It was a tough game for us, like we expected against a good side. A team that we knew were playing their first Premier League match at home, we knew what type of atmosphere we would play against here, one that would push them further for sure. They wanted to win the game as it was their first game, playing against a team that was promoted as well, that was always their obligation.

First half, our first press was not at the level it should be. They started to command the game as we failed a little bit with our first press. Their midfielders played without pressure the first 25 minutes and started to play inside our block, something we didn’t want.

But they didn’t create many clear chances, maybe one each half or two in the second half. We controlled the game well more or less, but on the ball we have to do much better.”

We have the capacity to do better. Of course it was a tough afternoon for both teams as it was very, very hot, [but] we were not dynamic enough with the ball. We want to use the ball quicker to utilise the spaces that we want to explore, and that was the thing that I took from the game, that we can clearly improve. But we showed very good organisation for the most part of the game, the togetherness, playing for each other, fighting for each other.

In the last moments of the game we showed maturity as well, which was important. Clean sheet is always important to have as well, and we have to go again.”
