Jol laments 'frustrating' decisions

By Football News



Fulham boss Martin Jol has bemoaned the decisions that went against his side during Sunday's 3-1 defeat to Liverpool.

Daniel Sturridge netted a hat-trick as Brendan Rodgers' men came from a goal down to earn a convincing win at Craven Cottage.

But Jol has cited a Lucas Leiva handball in the box and a poor Glen Johnson tackle on Eyong Enoh as moments which could have turned the match.

"The frustrating thing was that we should have had a couple of decisions for us and that didn't happen," he said. 

"Just before they scored I think it was a penalty kick, we should have had a corner-kick, maybe a red card. 

"First half, 1-0 up, we had a situation in their box five seconds later it was in our goal. So that was the frustrating thing today."

Fulham have lost six of their last seven games in the Premier League but the Dutchman insists he is not concerned by that run of form due to the opposition his side have faced.

"Sometimes I feel we should count our blessings," he added. 

"We always knew the last seven or eight games - Everton away, Chelsea, Arsenal, Liverpool - could have been a heavy schedule and it was. 

"We were happy to be on 40 points the only disappointing thing is that we couldn't get a result against them and be on 47 points."
