Silva says Everton ‘didn’t perform’ after 2-0 loss to relegated Fulham

Marco Silva says Everton ‘didn’t perform’ after watching his side lose 2-0 at already-relegated Fulham.

Fulham ended a run of nine consecutive defeats at Craven Cottage, with goals from Tom Cairney and Ryan Babel sealing an upset win for the hosts.

The defeat ended a run of three successive wins for Silva’s side, and the Everton manager admits his side performed below expectations.

”We didn’t play football,” Silva told Sky Sports.

”Everyone came here to see a football match and in the second-half it was not a football match. Eight, nine or 10 times the medical staff came on the pitch. Difficult to have intensity as every five minutes the game stopped.

Everton’s next fixture is a home clash with Manchester United at Goodison Park, and Silva says his side must bounce back after a disappointing performance in West London.

“It is not because it is Manchester United that we need to react, we did not perform today, it was not enough for us at the level of the club.”
