Fulham boss Marco Silva: Man Utd defeat cruel for us

Fulham boss Marco Silva says defeat at home to Manchester United was “cruel”.

Fulham lost 2-1 in injury-time thanks to Alejandro Garnacho’s winner for United.

Silva said, “It’s really tough. A cruel game for us. Unfortunately the second in a row against two Manchester sides, even if the last game was slightly different. The way we played, the way we performed, we deserved more form the game.

“We have to learn from the moments because we can never lose the focus against these types of sides. We lost it in some moments, they can punish you. United came here and they play almost all the moments in counter-attack trying to explore.

“It’s tough to take because I think we did OK first half and the second half was really good for ourselves. We were probably the team closer to doing something more and then came the late goal which punished us.

“This is the Premier League and if you lose focus then in one second they can punish you. This is the reality and you have to learn.”
