Rene Meulensteen: 'Everton loss a hard defeat to take'

Fulham manager Rene Meulensteen says that today's 4-1 loss to Everton was "a hard defeat to take".

Fulham manager Rene Meulensteen has said that today's 4-1 loss to Everton was "a hard defeat to take".

The Cottagers drew level when Dimitar Berbatov scored from the spot in the 67th minute, but goals from Seamus Coleman, Gareth Barry and Kevin Mirallas saw Everton run out comfortable winners.

"If you see the game and the second half, it was never a 4-1 defeat, so it's disappointing," Meulensteen told BBC Sport. "We did really well in second half.

"The spirit and energy is back in the team, this is just a hard defeat to take.

"We need to brush it off, get to the training ground and prepare for the next game."

Fulham's next game sees them host Manchester City on Saturday.
