Hangeland focused on Everton as Fulham bid to avoid relegation

A 5-0 thrashing by Manchester City left the Cottagers rock bottom of the Premier League with just seven games remaining, and the defender is keen not to dwell on the loss
Brede Hangeland has urged his Fulham team-mates to put their Manchester City mauling behind them and focus on the remaining seven games.

3/1 Fulham are 3/1 with William Hill to beat Everton
The 5-0 defeat at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday grounded the London side following the first win of the Felix Magath era at home to Newcastle United.

Next up for the Premier League's bottom side is a home clash with Everton and Hangeland knows time is running out in the battle to avoid relegation and Fulham cannot afford to dwell on last weekend's setback at City.

"I think you need to do that [clear your head] as soon as possible," the Norwegian international defender told the Fulham Chronicle.

"For me personally, that's not a problem. When the game's over you can't do much about it so you've got to look forward to next week.

"There is someone [a sports psychologist] if you need that after the games, but I've been in the game so long that whether we win, lose or draw I manage to forget it quite quickly and prepare for the next game."
