Fulham made life difficult for Chelsea at the Craven Cottage on Saturday evening, but the Blues laboured hard to get a 1-0 win at the end.

It took a 78th minute strike from Mason Mount to break down Fulham who played the entire second half with a man down.

For Fulham boss Scott Parker, he was pleased with the performance of his side, but admitted that it was a shame Chelsea got ahead so late in the game.

He said after the match: “You don’t ever feel you’ve done enough because of the circumstances of being down to 10 men and the quality Chelsea have at their disposal. You’re playing the clock a bit second half and you get to 78 minutes and you think ‘can we hold on?’.

“I thought we defender heroically and we defended very well. It’s a shame they got their nose in front but overall nothing but admiration for the way the team played.

“First half limited them really and then ten minutes before the sending off we were in the ascendancy and missed a big chance with Cavaleiro when really when your us, those chances need to go in. Sending off changes the game obviously.”
