Meulensteen left stunned by Fulham collapse

Fulham Head Coach Rene Meulensteen declared himself ‘shocked’ after his side were thrashed 6-0 away to Hull City, BBC Sport has reported.

After a goalless first half which was largely controlled by the hosts, Fulham went behind four minutes into the second when Ahmed Elmohamady found the net from the edge of the penalty area.

From then on, the newly promoted side ran riot, with Robert Koren scoring twice, George Boyd and Tom Huddlestone firing in low efforts and Matt Fryatt volleying home a rebound from close range. The embarrassing loss meant that Fulham remained in the relegation zone, behind Crystal Palace in goal difference.

Since Meulensteen took over from Martin Jol at the beginning of December, Fulham have conceded four or more goals in a match on three occasions, which has helped to take their goals against column to 41, more than any other side in the Premier League.

After the game, Meulensteen said: "An apology for the travelling fans is right in this place. I'm shocked. I don't know if there was something in the tea. Today was just not good enough.

"I did not see that coming and the players did not see that coming. We didn't play particularly well in the first half but were still in the game. The spell from 60 minutes onwards they scored three quick goals and it was game over. We couldn't come back from it. I thought [the game] against Norwich was much better, but today wasn't and we need to go back to the drawing board."
