Slavisa Jokanovic urges Fulham to learn quickly

Fulham boss Slavisa Jokanovic has urged his side to learn from the mistakes they made during Saturday’s 3-0 defeat at Everton in the Premier League.

The loss at Goodison Park means the Cottagers have only won one of their opening seven league matches since returning to the top flight and they sit just two places and three points above the relegation zone.

Jokanovic felt his side enjoyed the better of the play during the first half of Saturday’s match, but he admits they were dealt a harsh lesson during the second period.

“We dominated for the first 45 minutes,” Jokanovic said.

“We had clear chances to score a goal. The second half, we didn’t play well enough and we didn’t find the chances.”

A brace from Gylfi Sigurdsson came either side of a Cenk Tosun strike to seal what was a relatively routine victory for Everton, but Jokanovic felt the manner in which his side conceded was not acceptable.

He added: “In the second half, we paid a really expensive price. We must learn and continue with the process and start to be more competitive. To concede in the games is not acceptable and it is going to be really hard for us.”

Fulham are next in action when they play host to in-form Arsenal in the Premier League next Sunday and they are priced at 5.00 to emerge from that contest with all three points, while the Gunners are available at 1.62 and the draw is on offer at 4.20.
