IN-FORM HANGE’S FUL OF IT
BREDE HANGELAND insists Fulham can continue upsetting the Premier League big boys this season.
The Cottagers have snatched a point at Arsenal and beaten Liverpool in their last two league matches – and now face Manchester United and Chelsea later this month.
They could be without Danny Murphy for two games as their skipper has an ankle injury, but Hangeland is brimming with confidence. He said: “The way we played against Liverpool and what we did at Arsenal last week shows it doesn’t matter who we play.
“We are just as likely to pick up points against the big boys as much as the so-called weaker teams.”
Martin Jol’s men edged away from trouble and towards mid-table with their win over Liverpool on Monday. Centrehalf Hangeland (right) added: “If you look at the league table, everyone can see how important that game was.
“We know what we can do and, as long as we keep putting in good performances, we will get our reward in the end.
“It’s not nice to be where we have been in the table, so hopefully we will move up as soon as possible.
“There is a fine line between success and failure. We are extremely happy to get the three points.”
John Arne Riise also claims his team-mates are ready to face high-flying sides after their morale-boosting win over Kenny Dalglish’s men.
He added: “To play against Manchester United, Arsenal and Liverpool is hard work. But if we do what we can we have a chance to go away with points.”
