Wednesday proved to be a night of shocks in the top flight as bottom club Sunderland put a huge dent in Manchester City’s championship challenge with a 2-2 draw at the Etihad Stadium, while Crystal Palace’s 3-2 win at Goodison Park dealt a real blow to Everton’s hopes of a top four finish and a Champions League berth.
They were two results which showed the unpredictable nature of the Premier League and our Belgian international knows we will have to be fully focused right from kick-off to prevent Fulham producing another surprise result. The Cottagers arrive in N17 in the relegation zone, two points from safety and will be desperate to pick up a win which would boost their survival aspirations.
“Every team in this division is tough to play against, but when you see Sunderland and Crystal Palace getting such fantastic results against top sides, it shows that any team can beat any other on their day,” said Nacer.
“It doesn’t matter who we are playing, we have to have the right attitude and focus and it will be no different against Fulham this weekend. We’re at home and we want to win every game here.
“Hopefully we can make a sharp start to the game and not concede early like we have done in our last few matches. We’ve played very well at times in recent games, have created chances and scored quite a few goals as well, so if we can continue that on Saturday then I’m confident we can pick up three points.”
