Fulham manager Marco Silva admits he was left happy following their 2-1 win over Chelsea.
The Cottagers saw off Chelsea as Joao Felix was issued a marching order on debut.
Silva said: “Delighted with the result, pleased with the first-half. The second-half wasn’t at our best level.
“The good thing we can take as a group, even in the second-half we didn’t perform at our best and we are able to win a football match against a top side even if they are on a bad run.
“They are Chelsea and that means top quality players with a great manager. It was a tough game for us the first-half was good for us but we didn’t start well, it took some time for us to adjust. We had chances, they had chances as well but we were more clinical than them
“In the second half we started not as good conceded a goal in the first two minutes is not the best way to start against a good side it gave them a boost. After the red card it gave us the obligation to win the game.
“The red card is always an important moment, we changed it with Harry Wilson and Tom Cairney to give our team more creativity, and a bit more calmness on the ball.
“The goal came from a great cross from Andreas [Pereira] a big goal for Carlos [Vinicius] because he is always in the shadow of our top scorer in Mitrovic, and he needs time to adapt and with more time he is improving as well and it is an important moment for him.”
