Fulham midfielder Bobby De Cordova-Reid hailed the "game plan" of manager Scott Parker for Sunday's win at Liverpool.
The Whites headed to Anfield targeting three points, and were duly rewarded for their positive mindset.
Speaking to fulhamfc.com today, De Cordova-Reid said: “It was massive, and the best thing is that we knew we had a chance, we knew that if we played our game and were resilient in what we were doing, that we would have a good chance, and the gameplan came off perfectly.
“We all believed before the game. The Manager told us in meetings beforehand that we've got to have belief.
“We know how well we can play, they were a wounded animal and we knew if we applied pressure and played our game that we would be okay, and it was just a nice feeling when the whistle went to get the three points as that will bring confidence into the games coming up.
“We don't fear anyone in this league. We know how good we are. Conceding goals, we're second in the table for the past I don't know how many games.
“We know that we're good defensively and we know that we can score goals and play good football so, listen, we'll just bounce into every game with high confidence and the belief that we can beat anyone."
During the game, the commentators dropped in that De Cordova-Reid actually grew up as a Liverpool fan…
“Yeah, that's correct!" he laughed. “I'll put that down to my brothers and cousins being Liverpool fans.
“I enjoyed being a Liverpool fan, I still am. It's a bit unfortunate what's going on there at the moment, but from my point of view it was an opportunity to get three points, and I'm happy to take them.
“It's something I can look back on in my career. It's a big achievement, especially taking four points off them out of six, and to score a goal [in the home fixture] as well, it was perfect for me."
