"It was a battle but in the first half I believe we were really on top of the game. We had a lot of fluency in our game and at 1-0 we wanted to keep them under pressure but in the second half they made a real battle of it.

"There were a lot of long balls, they played a bit higher up. It became different and we had the deflected ball to concede the goal, but we had the resources to come back and win in a convincing way because we kept going.

"I think we have scored 16 times in the last 33 games in the last 15 minutes and we did that again today."

"Bernard Mendy was a handful with his pace and determination, but overall it was a good contest between him and Gael Clichy.

"I believe this team goes from strength to strength. Mentally they were up for it, we were focused, united, and ready for the battle. And we gave it a go until the end."
