Fulham’s 0-0 draw with Everton disappointed Marco Silva, urging his players to be more clinical after failing to convert dominance into goals.
Raul Jimenez, substituted at halftime, squandered a golden opportunity in the first half, while Rodrigo Muniz was unable to make an impact on the game.
Fulham could not establish a 10-point lead over the relegation-threatened Toffees in the table, further compounding their woes following last week’s exits from the Carabao Cup and FA Cup.
“With the result, I am disappointed. Both teams had chances to score and it was clear we were the most dominant on the pitch.
“We created many chances to score, we had good moments but we missed putting the ball in the net.
“It is not a good thing (Fulham missing chances). The decision making has to be better in the final third of the attack. We need to be more assertive, more calm in some decisions because we arrived in so many dangerous areas.
“We need to be more ruthless and clinical in moments.”
Marco Silva believes his side created enough chances, but couldn’t convert them
Despite scoring four goals in December, Jimenez appeared a shadow of his usual self against Everton.
In the final days of the transfer window, there were links between the west Londoners and Chelsea’s Armando Broja, but Silva downplayed the possibility of a deal before Thursday’s deadline.
Silva said: “To be honest with you, I am not expecting many things towards the end of the market. If it was possible to do something we should of done it at the beginning of the window because we had a semi-final to play and the FA Cup.
“The board are trying to do their best but if you ask me if we are going to do many things at the end of the market, then no.
“I will not talk about players that are not our players and rumours.”
