“Last week the game was all ours. Today it was very different and when you play like that against the top teams it’s very difficult to win.


Today we were extremely poor. There have been periods recently when we have been excellent and others when we have suffered. We’ve not had the consistency for 95 minutes that we want.

“We didn’t have the threat and aggression we’ve been playing at and that is worrying. The moment something went wrong we just went down and didn’t know how to react. It’s my responsibility to get the best from the players. They have been exceptionally good and playing at level that probably one expected. Now it’s down to me to get the best out of them.”
