Martin Jol admits Fulham got off lightly with a 4-1 defeat against Manchester United in the FA Cup fourth round, saying that the Cottagers could have conceded “six or seven” goals to the Red Devils.

Ryan Giggs and Wayne Rooney both netted, and Javier Hernandez bagged a double to seal an easy win for Sir Alex Ferguson’s side, with Aaron Hughes scoring a late consolation for the visitors at Old Trafford.

Fulham host West Ham United in the Premier League on Wednesday and Jol is keen to see his side return to winning ways.

“We tried to have good intentions and play our football but we couldn’t,” Jol told ESPN after Saturday’s loss.

“We couldn’t link up from the back and we couldn’t keep the ball.

“It was still 1-0 at half-time so we were still in it, but we came out and they scored two early goals and the game was finished.

“Luckily enough they only scored a fourth goal because it could have been one of those days that they scored six or seven.

“But it’s a one-off game and we lost it. For us the most important thing is the league.”
