In the second half, they just put [us under] pressure and pressure. The fact that we worked so hard together managed to get us the three points today.

It’s nice that we have got so many different options and so many different players who can impact the game – it’s an enjoyable team to be a part of.

We have just got to keep our heads down and take every game as it comes. There is no easy game in the Premier League. Today, in the second half, I feel as though I literally ran the whole half and didn’t touch the ball.

It’s hard work, but we have just keep doing what we’re doing.
