Andre on Fulham
Andre Villas-Boas is determined to make it three wins in a week in the Premier League when we travel to Fulham on Saturday.
We face Martin Jol’s team in a 3pm kick-off at Craven Cottage after beating West Ham and Liverpool back-to-back at the Lane.
Those wins have moved us up to fifth in the Premier League. “We want to capitalise on our run of form, but we understand that it will be difficult with Fulham and then Everton away,” said Andre.
Statistics show that Fulham have gone six matches without a win - but that only tells half the story with draws against Arsenal, Chelsea and Everton in that sequence. The Cottagers drew 0-0 at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday night.
“You could argue that their recent form has taken them down the table a little, but they’ve managed to draw at Arsenal and Chelsea away and this is no easy game,” added Andre.
“Fulham have made one of their best starts in the Premier League. They are looking good, they are well managed by Martin, he defends good football and his teams are always well organised.
“We hope to be as competitive as we have been, knowing we have to recover physically for the game. The players have been excellent in the way they’ve approached every game, they are all at 100 per cent, no-one takes their foot off the gas and I think if they do that again, we have a big chance, no doubt.”
