Marco Silva makes honest Liverpool admission after dashing Fulham Carabao Cup final dreams

Marco Silva admits Liverpool’s greater composure helped prove the difference as his Fulham side suffered League Cup heartache.

A late equaliser from Issa Diop wasn’t enough as the Londoners were held to a 1-1 draw at Craven Cottage in their semi-final second leg on Wednesday evening to lose 3-2 on aggregate.

Fulham had taken the lead in the first game at Anfield a fortnight ago only to lose 2-1, with the Reds now facing Chelsea at Wembley next month in a record 14th League Cup final appearance.

And Silva said: “Overall in the two legs, we had that 15-20 minutes in the second half when we were winning 1-0 and had two or three fantastic counter-attacks which with better decisions we could have scored from.

“Those moments are important. When you play against a team who are so consistent no matter what competition they are playing in, they are top of the league for a reason, those moments count. I felt they were much more calm than us. For them it was another game. For most of our players it was new for them to play in a semi-final.

“The atmosphere in our stadium was brilliant tonight. We need more of these moments as our players will be stronger with this kind of support.”
