He also warned that second place in the Premiership isn't in the bag yet, saying:

"Mathematically we have not finished second yet. We must wait until Wednesday and then finish the job.

"I think we played some better football today and recently than we have done ever. The team is growing from game to game and we have so many young players in there.

"It is very encouraging for the future. I've seen these signs coming for the last two months. Ashley is still young, Toure is 23, Fabregas 18, Reyes 21, Van Persie 21 - they are all young boys. It is very difficult to build a good team. But we don't want to lose our players."
