"This time he scored. It was early in the match and it gave the team more confidence and stability. It was very important. The kid played fantastic.

"Why? Everybody knows why because we lost too many points at home. But it's a great feeling to know that it's difficult for us to lose a match, people fight until the end.
"I am really happy with the team and with the result because Manchester City and Liverpool results left us in a position of having to win this match – not even a draw would have been a good result for us.
"I am really happy for us because we kept two windows open to try to play Champions League football.
"I cannot give up on the Premier League yet – we have to try. If one day we are in the Europa League and in the Premier League the distance is too big then we have to prioritise and nobody can criticise us if we do it in a different way in the last matches of the league.
"But while it is mathematically possible we will go with everything we have."
