"If, against Liverpool at Wembley, you do not have the desire and the focus to play [there is something wrong]".

"Michel was involved and the team, which is responsible, and I am responsible".

"For me the performance was better than the result. It is not easy in four seasons to be in the shadow of Lloris".

"We don't play Champions League or what?" said the German, whose side now top the table with a 100 per cent record after four matches and are widely seen as the main challengers to defending champions Manchester City.

After the break, Lucas Moura produced a moment of magic to skip past Joe Gomez but could only hit the post shortly after the break, but that succeeded in bringing the home fans to life.

I had to look at the incident three times, then finally in slow motion to see if there had been contact. You always know our attacking threat will hurt the opposition and score goals, so for us as a team it's about defending properly and that's everyone from the goalkeeper to the striker.

"We need to still improve and improve a lot". The most important thing is to keep the balance. "I am not anxious I promise you". We could have scored more. I've not changed my feeling from one or two months ago.
