Fulham manager Roy Hodgson accepted that his side had ended up being well beaten in their 4-0 FA Cup sixth round loss at home to Manchester United.
The Cottagers had hoped to spring a shock at Craven Cottage, but were undone by a first-half double from Carlos Tevez and further strikes from Wayne Rooney and Ji-sung Park.
Hodgson commented: "I thought we were good in the first half, obviously we were disappointed with the first goal.
"We know how good they are at set-plays, so that was a major disappointment.
"The second goal was a wonder strike, then you have a mountainous task. Your only chance against them is to go a goal up."
Meanwhile, Hodgson believes that United have the quality and depth of squad to try and win six trophies this season,
He added: "Of course it is possible for United to win the lot. They have a good chance and I wouldn't bet against them.
"The most difficult will be the Champions League."
