Fulham’s John Arne Riise - Killer instinct was missing against Norwich City

Fulham full-back John Arne Riise admitted the Cottagers are struggling to kill off teams at home.

'I think we played well first half and should have scored a few more goals to maybe kill the game off, but in the second half Norwich keep pushing on,' said the ex-Liverpool man.

'We didn't play well second half. They came into the game and when they scored we just defended with everything we had, and they could have nicked the draw, but we are happy because after three defeats in a row, we really needed that one.

'It just seems to happen to us – if you don't kill the game off at home, and then they get a goal, they get the momentum and we just couldn't keep the ball.'

Clint Dempsey was impressive again for Fulham, and Riise added: 'He's very important because you can always rely on him – and he scores with every part of his body as well.'
