Jol: Fulham were too relaxed against Everton

The Cottagers boss was frustrated with his side's complacent approach in their 1-0 defeat to the Toffees at Goodison Park on Saturday, and believes it was an opportunity missed
Fulham manager Martin Jol lambasted his side for their “summer night” approach after a 1-0 Premier League defeat to Everton on Saturday.

The west London club went down to a first-half goal from Steven Pienaar and struggled to impose themselves on the match throughout.

Jol told the Fulham Chronicle:“I feel this was one of these days. We could have had a result.

“The only thing is you need to play with a bit more purpose. The first half was a bit too relaxed for me, like a summer night game.

“The second half we did a bit better in possession, but it's still disappointing.

“The players are professional. They want to get as high in the league as possible, like I do. I will give anything to be in the top 10.

“It's disappointing that we couldn't get a result in the last three or four games.”
