Fulham centre-back Mawson brand his own sides defence as ‘embarrassing and diabolical.’

Fulham defender Alfie Mawson has blasted his side’s defending so far this season, labelling it as ’embarrassing’.

Claudio Ranieri’s side are rooted to the foot of the Premier League table, having conceded a huge 42 goals in just 17 league games.

They are the only side in all four tiers of English football to have not kept a clean sheet so far this season.

“It goes without saying – to concede in general is horrible, but to concede the amount we have conceded is diabolical, to be honest. It’s embarrassing.’’ Maswon told Sky Sports News.

“I speak for myself and the back four. The ‘keepers, to be fair, have made plenty of saves this year.

“[It’s] down to us either being a bit naive in this league and not knowing what we’re up against, and sometimes just the pure quality of this league.

“We’ve got to change something. We’ve got to take the negatives on board, but we’ve also got to take the positives.

“When we do get the clean sheet – which is going to come – then we can build on that.”

Fulham travel to St.James Park to face Newcastle later today.
