Roy Hodgson has vowed to carry on where his team left off after Fulham’s sensational 2-0 win over reigning Premiership champions Manchester United.

Fulham’s next match is a mouth-watering home tie against an in-form Liverpool side at Craven Cottage on April 4.

Hodgson said: “We will certainly be doing over very best to make certain the performance we give against Liverpool and Chelsea are in no way inferior to the performance we gave today [Saturday].

“We will work very hard and do our best and we will try to get points off them.”

The Cottagers’ have now claimed maximum points at home to United and Arsenal and drew the games against Chelsea and Liverpool.

Goals from Danny Murphy and Zoltan Gera secured the first home win against the Premiership champions in 45 years.

Hodgson added: “I’m very pleased with the victory. I thought the players deserved this.

“It is nice to reach the magical total of 40 points. I am hoping the next eight games will produce the type of football we produced today [Saturday] and who knows where that will take us.”

The Fulham manager said the course of the game could have been different had United midfielder Paul Scholes not been sent-off for handling a goal-bound header from Bobby Zamora.

Ex-Liverpool player Murphy converted the spot kick to give the home side a 1-0 lead going into the break.

Hodgson said it was understandable that his team developed a ‘seige mentality’ in the second-half as United pressed for the equaliser.

He singled out keeper Mark Schwarzer for praise as the Aussie kept-out a powerful Christiano Ronaldo header and then produced a double save to deny Wayne Rooney and then Ji-Sung Park.

“Had they equalised who knows what would have happened. They had us against the ropes,” he added.

In the end it was left to the Hungarian Gera to coolly slot the ball home three minutes from the end to secure Fulham a famous victory before Rooney was sent off for dissent to cap off a miserable afternoon for the Premiership champions.
