Ream admits Fulham are ‘massively disappointed’ after Burnley defeat

Fulham defender Tim Ream said his team is massively disappointed after they surrendered a one-goal lead to lose 2-1 at Burnley in the Premier League today.

Andre Schurrle had given The Cottagers the lead in the second minute of the game but two own-goals by Fulham handed Burnley the three points in a tight affair at Turf Moor.

“We are massively disappointed. We started really well and then conceded possession quite a bit. In the second half, we showed what we are about and we were unlucky not to put one away.’’ Ream told the BBC.

“We couldn’t get close in midfield, they outworked us. At this stage, you can’t get outworked. We conceded too many crosses as well, that’s their bread and butter. Eventually, they will score.”

Ream felt that Fulham were hard done by as they had limited Burnley’s to very little opportunities in the game.

“We can look back and think what could have been but the own goals were really their only chances.”

Today’s defeat leaves Fulham in 19th position, just three points above Huddersfield Town and four points behind Newcastle United.

Next up for Claudio Ranieri’s team is a London derby at home to Spurs on Sunday week.
