with Andreas Pereira being thwarted as he attempted to round the goalkeeper as close as the hosts would come. Moyes said: “We had to defend pretty well for periods of the game but I thought we defended really well today. It’s two clean sheets in a week, two 1-0 victories in a week. We ground it out today and found a way to get a result.”
With Fulham manager Marco Silva watching on from the stands, serving the first of his two-game touchline ban, Moyes was animated and relieved at the final whistle.
Moyes had made five changes as he sought a response to the Newcastle debacle, but it was a moment of good fortune which decided this fraught contest.
“It was a frustrating afternoon for us,” Silva said. “We had almost 80 per cent possession but it’s not important if you don’t use it.
“They played in a low block and they tried to be compact while exploiting transitions and with set-pieces. We arrived thinking in this way, but we were so static in the first half. We weren’t dynamic and we didn’t create many chances.”

“They scored through our own goal which should be disallowed because it was a clear handball from Coufal in the build-up. Why VAR didn’t check that moment, it is difficult for us as it was right in front of the linesman.
“Even so, we are punished by our performance in the first half. We looked for more creativity with our changes at half-time to become more unpredictable. It was a better second half with two or three dangerous moments, but it was not enough for us to equalise.
“The quality in our execution wasn’t at the level it should be.
“I only know one way [to turn results around] and that is through working hard. It was in this way that we’ve had so many good performances this season so far and why we’re where we are in the table. We need to show personality on the pitch to improve.
“When you’re not getting results, it is normal to play without confidence but it is up to us to change it.”

“We nicked a goal. The changes worked and we saw a few of the boys that have been around a while and know their jobs. That gave us a foundation to work from. They are really good, experienced players who I can trust.
“We started with Danny [Ings] and Mic [Michail Antonio] today to see if it could give us something else. In bits it did.
“We want to probably play a more expansive game, that’s the plan. But I think you understand that when you are in this position in the league there’s a way you have to play. I think, today, the decisions we made and when we made them all worked really well.
“We’re really looking forward to Europe now, another chance to get to a semi-final. We’re hoping that we can do it.
“Sometimes when you’re not in the right position you have to find ways of winning and I thought we did that today. We’d like to be playing a bit different.”
