The Sky Blues boss admitted that he was concerned during the game when his side missed a host of chances, and hit out at the Whites' controversial penalty.
"I think that we played a good game. To win the game we had a lot of chances, but it was a difficult match because we were 1-0 down. I'm very pleased with this," he said.
"For me, it was never a penalty [for Fulham's opener]. But the guys today played a really good game.
"I was worried because we continued to play well and continued to create chances, but didn't score for 87 minutes. I was pleased for Edin to score such an important goal."
