Ordinarily, being gracious in victory is the done thing. Not you, or I, really likes a gloater but in this instance, seeing as Fulham recorded their first win at Anfield since 2013, and our 8th unbeaten away game on the bounce this season, instructing Jurgen Klopp and all the world's insufferable Kopites to kindly stick a 6th-consecutive home loss in a zoot feels so, so appropriate.

We really didn't deserve that loss. The rub of the green went against Fulham, buddying up to Jose Mourinho's Tottenham Hotspur and though this result epitomises our season incomparably, I simply can't recall a more wanky win for Spurs. Another fierce performance, which warranted so much more, ends with absolutely nothing to show for it.

Somebody said we're unbeaten in seven away games. Somebody said we've accumulated 14 points in 8 league meetings. Somebody said we're three points off Newcastle United. Somebody said we're in trouble. I know our next three matches are against Tottenham Hostpur, Liverpool and Manchester City, but can I have a show of hands from those who believe we can impose a few major upsets in the coming weeks? We can't admit defeat, Fulham are marching on, point by point, and we'll give any team in the Premier League a scare.

Spring's in sight and so is 17th spot in the standings. What a difference a week makes, eh? Fulham, before our trip to Goodison Park, were frozen out of survival conversations as mid-February's stormy snap rudely announced itself and as the climate slowly warmed heading into Saturday evening's crunch clash with Sheffield United, brighter skies were and are indeed imminent for the Whites. We'll let the sunshine in with a 1-0 dub, because we're now only three points behind Newcastle United and who would've though that?

Fulham hadn’t won a single meeting against Burnley at Turf Moor since 1951, which is a madness, and that archaic record still stands today after Scott Parker’s Whites held Sean Dyche’s Clarets to a rather boring 1-1 draw. We’ll briefly address the obvious observations of the game: we weren’t good enough, not by a long chalk, and we were clearly knackered following Sunday’s exploits. Nothing drastic, we just weren’t 100% and that’s fine by me if we bounce back immediately.

No win at Goodison Park in 22 worthless attempts? Carlo Ancelotti, mate, hold this freshly poured beer of ours, will you? The Italian sure knows how to clasp a paper cup of undisclosed steaming liquid but when it comes to compounding Fulham's long-standing losing streak, to press repeat on prosaic history, he's our guy. Valentine's Day isn't really for overcooked M&S steaks, wilting roses and singular points. We wanted a threesome and we bloody well got it with a clean sheet, too.

Read it and weep, Fulham still haven't won a top-flight 'London Derby' since 2014, 19 capital meetings and counting, and Saturday's bore score draw against West Ham United was arguably the closest we've come to exiling that embarrassing record, a statistic we just can't shake for love, money or survival.

Ladies and gentlemen, that was Leicester City's first win at Craven Cottage in nearly 38 years and without Jamie Vardy, Kelechi Iheanacho, who hadn't scored in 15 outings, throttled his duck to open the scoring for the Foxes, leaving Fulham treading in deep, deep water at the foot of the table.
