Fulham skipper Danny Murphy has urged his teammates to move on from Monday night's 5-2 defeat against Liverpool.

The Cottagers were as good as beaten after 16 minutes when they found themselves three goals behind to the Reds, and the result didn't flatter Kenny Dalglish's side.

“It’s difficult to find the right words to say why it happened. You can look at individual mistakes and a lot of us made mistakes on the night," Murphy told the official Fulham website.

“It’s disappointing because since January we’ve been on a good run and our home form has been great. We certainly didn’t see that [result] coming. It’s important not to let one blip get us down but for me personally, it’s really disappointing because you always want to do well against your old team."

Defeat to Liverpool aside, the Cottagers have been in good form under Mark Hughes and find themselves handily placed in the top half of the Barclays Premier League table.


With a trip to Birmingham City, a team fighting against relegation, next on the table, Murphy has urged his Fulham teammates to instantly regroup as they look to push higher up the division.

“We’ll regroup – we’ve got a big game against Birmingham City on Sunday. It’ll be a fight at St. Andrews and we want to finish as high as possible," he continued.

We’ve always said the top ten is our aim and we’ve still got a good chance of that."
