EPL: We played eye to eye with them – Marco Silva on why Chelsea didn’t beat Fulham


Fulham boss, Marco Silva has explained why the big-money Chelsea team could not beat his team during the Premier League 0-0 draw on Friday night.

After spending over 300 million pounds in the January transfer window, many Chelsea supporters are disappointed that Graham Potter’s side could not score a goal against their London rivals on Friday night.

The goalless draw at Stamford Bridge meant that the Blues are still 9th in the Premier League table. And Silva explained that his players understood the game plan and kept to it throughout the game.

“A proper derby. A good derby from ourselves. From the first minute, the players understood the plan really well and executed it well as well. We were here to embrace the challenge and play eyes to eyes with Chelsea.” Silva told Sky Sports after the game.

“I told the players we had to be even better than the last game at the Cottage and they did it. The way we always tried to play forward and our reaction when we lost the ball was really good, and I think we deserved the points.

“In the last minutes of the game, they pushed us back, a normal situation, but our organisation was really good.”
