Rene Meulensteen: Fulham boss staying positive after Hull thrashing

Fulham's next two Premier League games are against West Ham and Sunderland, both of whom visit Craven Cottage during January.

Regarding a potential lack of confidence, Fulham boss Meulensteen said: "That is one of the things I addressed straight away in the dressing room.

"You don't let this affect you in up and coming games.

"We've got two crucial matches coming up and what we need to do is take it on the chin, learn from it and bounce back.

"We need to look back and make sure you don't forget the good things we've tried to create over the last couple of weeks.

"We need to make sure we shrug it off and are ready to react against West Ham (on New Year's Day).

"We always knew it was going to be difficult with two games in three days and you utilise your squad the best possible way you can.

"Because of the intensity of games you are forced to make changes, with little injuries and niggles and that's why you have a squad.

"I was more than confident that the players I picked for this away trip were capable of getting a result and that is why it is so weird.

"For me, the bottom 10 teams are in a relegation battle. We're lying if we say we're not looking over our shoulders."

still can't see the Phil Jones thing that some people go on about. Whenever I watch him play it's a repeat of headless chicken meets a gurning Bambi on ice for 90 minutes.

robably the first list I've come across in a long time where I agree with a large majority of what was written. Can't agree with everything though, Zaba has had an awful season by his standards, I'd put Monreal (a player who I've never rated) up there, gotta give credit where it's due, he's really stepped up his game.
