Fulham goalkeeper Mark Schwarzer admits his side's desire has helped them towards their best season in the Premier League.

Wins in their final three leagues games of the season, starting against Liverpool on Monday night, will give Fulham their highest points tally since being promoted to the Premier League ten years ago.

And following last season's success, where they reached the Europa League final, the Aussie stopper is delighted with their season.

“As a team we’ve always been above the drop zone and reasonably comfortable. Obviously you’re always looking over your shoulder and there was a period when we were two or three points above the relegation zone at the turn of the year," he said.


“Even though our home record was outstanding and we were still getting points we were only three or five points away from the drop zone and that can play on your mind, but we’ve got a lot of experienced players at Fulham. As a group I think we’ve dealt with it very well and the confidence and belief was always there.

“We wish the season was going on a bit longer because we’re starting to hit some really good form and we look strong away from home."

"There's a lot of desire within this squad, not to mention a lot of competition for places.

“We have three games left to play now and I’m sure everyone will be wanting to play their part. On Monday we face Liverpool, who are a team in form at the moment and opposition that we know will be tough – but we have every confidence."
