How pleased were you with that performance?

I would say it was the most complete one, definitely. It was a dominating, controlled performance from the first second to the last second. Even the worldy didn’t seem to affect us. They had two shots in the whole game and one of them was a blocked shot – that just shoes the dedication and defensive mindset, distances, tactical pressing, everything was spot on off the ball. You know we’ve talked about this before, how hard we’ve been working on this side, so it’s very pleasing.

But even more pleasing is that now we’re adding the offensive qualities we know we have in the side. Throughout the game it just seemed when we wanted we could create an opportunity so that was really good.

Yeah, glad they’re listening now – they should listen more from the beginning! But yeah, it’s very pleasing and I think we have the players who can score goals and have the quality. I think Said Benrahma now has a good one-touch finish, and that is what we’ve been practicing on. And there was other good opportunities.

It’s nice and it’s important that the wing-backs are adding goals because they’re higher now, they’re sometimes wingers, so they need to get around the goal. And we’re still creating even more chances so that’s pleasing.
