Slavisa Jokanovic has admitted his Fulham side are still yet to show their true colours in the Premier League, however he remains unfazed and determined to avoid a relegation battle.
Discussing his team's 5-1 loss at home to the ruthless Arsenal on Sunday afternoon, Jokanovic was disappointed but accepting of the gulf in class between the two sides and admitted his team were missing a number of essentials.
Anguissa from Fulham has had the worst half hour of football I can remember a player having in the Premier League. Where did they get him from?! #FULARS— Lee Barratt (@LeeGallows) October 7, 2018
"I must be worried when we play bad and lose, I trust we play well and have more options to win the game.
"If I can complain about last game against Everton, I can complain about our attitude and this side to find some victory in this away game, today we try and didn't make good enough, we offered some positive signs but it's not easy to explain the positives, especially after one hard defeat today."
You can't judge Fulham on this game against a good team but you can judge on the season so far and defensively they're pathetic. Absolutely laughable, even more so when jokanovic doesn't even attempt to tighten them up or make them harder to beat.— Paul (@Paulc01989) October 7, 2018
In answer to questions about his team's capability at the Premier League level, Jokanovic argued:
"My team showed that and great spirit, but in one moment they restart the things with so may punishment for their side and we didn't find enough power to come back to the game."
Moving forward, the Fulham boss has accepted that his side must improve at the back, with Jokanovic adding:
"We spend the money because I trust we can find solution, but solution right now is in my hands and my players', we cannot be thinking about the money because this is our situation and we must find the solution."
