Fulham missed the chance to fully capitalize on the defeat suffered by second-placed Bournemouth in one of the close football results of the weekend in the Championship. Top scorer Aleksandar Mitrovic scored after going two games without a goal to put the Cottagers ahead. The home side was always in the game and made the leaders pay when Elijah Adebayo made no mistake in the 62nd minute. Fulham extended their lead to two points over Bournemouth after the latter lost to Blackburn.
Luton’s Nathan Jones: “They have slightly more quality than us because they’re probably [on a] £100million a year budget, so they probably have a little bit more composure and a little bit more quality. If we had just a bit more of that, we would have won the game today. But to go up against, and they are the best side in the league, let’s be honest. They’re top of the league for a reason because they are the best side in the league.”
Fulham’s Marco Silva: “It was a tough game for us. It’s always tough to play here, we knew it would be. [They are a] physical team. We know the way they like to play, they do everything and after they fight for the first and second balls, they are strong in that moment. I think we controlled all the first half with the ball, the way we want to do, not creating many chances, not creating the chances we should create, but of course, we scored on a set-piece and after that, we controlled the game.”
