FULHAM boss Martin Jol paid tribute to David Moyes’ ‘Barcelona Blues’ on Saturday.
The Fulham manager admitted his side had got lucky to escape with a draw from a one-sided contest at Craven Cottage.
When asked whether his side’s good home form played a part in their dramatic comeback, Jol praised the spirit of his players, and also the style of the opposition, comparing the Toffees to Barcelona.
“The only thing that I can say that’s positive is that we never gave up. Everton were stronger than us, they are a very good team and they pressed us and their full-backs were almost playing like Barcelona’s do,” he said.
“We were playing a very good team who had a lot of possession but the game changed over 90 minutes.
“They dominated us and Alexander Kacaniklic was nearly playing at left-back, while Damien Duff over the other side was the same.
We had a spare man in midfield, but they were almost playing a 4-2-4 and Fellaini was more of a striker than a midfield player today and it’s a very good and brave style.
