Roy Hodgson praised the attitude of his Fulham side after they battled to secure a goalless draw against Liverpool at Anfield.
The Cottagers were under pressure for much of the game on Sunday afternoon, but held their fellow Europa League semi-finalists at bay.
Hodgson told the club's official website:"It was a sterling defensive performance against a very good team.
"There is no doubt that Liverpool dominated the game and we were forced on to the back foot, but I thought we stood our corner very well and worked very hard to stop them getting clear-cut chances.
"It's another excellent clean sheet after coming back from Wolfsburg with a clean sheet.
"I've got to be very satisfied with what the team has done here because Liverpool are a very hard team to take points from, home or away.
"We lacked a bit of quality today, but it's partly due to the fact we've had a tough week. It was a very good and hard-working performance."
