Stoke boss Tony Pulis felt his side ‘absolutely murdered’ Fulham – but admitted they had to weather late pressure to seal the points.
The Potters enjoyed the lion’s share of chances during a forgettable clash at the Britannia Stadium, but had to settle for Charlie Adam’s decisive first half strike.
And Pulis was concerned their inability to finish off Fulham could have come back to haunt them, as the Whites pressed late on.
He said: “I thought we absolutely murdered them – we could have had five or six.
“I thought we were the better team right up until about the 82nd minute. Then, having dominated the game we got a little bit nervous.
“They had a lot of possession but it was mainly in front of us.”
