Liverpool ended our fine 12-match unbeaten run in the Premier League at Anfield last weekend and we then suffered a 4-1 loss at Inter on Thursday night, but progressed to the quarter-finals of the Europa League on the away goal after the tie ended 4-4 on aggregate.
“We’ve had two disappointing results, even though we went through against Inter,” said Michael.
“We all know that was a below-par performance but we’re in the next round, so that’s all that really matters.
“We’re all looking at Fulham now. They are a good team who play some great football but we’re back at the Lane, we’re confident and hopefully we’ll get the three points.”
Michael will then join up with the England squad for World Cup qualifiers against San Marino and Montenegro –he’s been called up with team-mates Kyle Walker, Jermain Defoe, Scott Parker and Aaron Lennon.
“It’s been a long time since my last cap (March, 2011) but I look forward to meeting up with the squad and hopefully I’ll do well,” he added.
