EPL: I’m disappointed, gutted over 1-1 draw with Arsenal – Fulham boss, Scott Parker
Fulham boss, Scott Parker has said that he was disappointed and gutted after his team failed to hang on for a crucial win over Arsenal in their Premier League clash on Sunday.
A win would have boosted Fulham’s chances in their bid to avoid relegation back into the Championship.
Eddie Nketiah came off the bench to equalise for the Gunners in the injury-time after Josh Maja’s penalty put the visitors ahead.
“I’m disappointed and gutted and the overriding factor is the team have worked tirelessly today, given everything, come to a place like this against a very good side and manged to get our nose in front,” Parker told a postmatch press conference.
“I’m immensely proud of the team and the journey they have been on and I often say a young team lacking Premier League experience and the journey has been an incredible one.
“They’ve given me everything and people will point fingers and say where we’ve failed and rightly so but there’s one area we have never failed and that’s desire and spirit and that’s the reason we still have a fighting chance.
“I’m proud but passion and spirit don’t win games, we need to win games, we will try to do that.”
Arsenal’s next Premier League game comes up on Friday against Everton, while Fulham face a difficult task against another London side, Chelsea.
