“Maybe they [sharper], of course not, but it was there when I calmed down. We had so many shots in the away game against United, but if we do that we should use those moments more.

“I’m worried about our situation. It’s not easy at the moment, but that’s the way it is. We’re preparing for Bournemouth, Newcastle and Everton. That’s right. I know I can play better. But there were a lot of good moments and performances today.

“From tomorrow, we will fight it.”
