Jol Admits Fulham Struggled To Cope With Swansea

Fulham boss Martin Jol admitted his players failed to cope with Swansea City's possession game, as they lost 3-0 at Craven Cottage today.

The Dutchman said that his side failed to play as a team to try and 'restrict' the Swans from playing their attractive style of football.

Sigurdsson scored two goals before Joe Allen added a third.

Jol told Sky Sports:

'Our intentions were good but we couldn't do what we always do and we gave them belief and more strength - they took advantage of it.

'I feel they (Swansea) always have a lot of possession. There are two ways you do it - press them or drop off and let them play and try to break them.

'Today we didn't play like a team and the players who normally make a difference were not there.

'They had similar points to us so it was important for us to have a home win, get to 39 points and try to get even more - maybe 50 points.

'They play their own style and you have to try and restrict them, but we couldn't.'

'Now we have to go to Manchester United and pick ourselves up and do better than what we did today.'
