From the Official mag:

"They have been brilliant over the past two years and have really set the standard.

"To compete with them we've had to raise our game and we've managed to do that so far.

"The only real difference is that they've spent millions on players and some of those are sitting on the bench, whereas we haven't quite spent the amounts of money they have. We said before the season that could unsettle them a bit, having all that talent just on the sidelines.

"Some of the football we've played has been breathtaking and to be part of that is fantastic.

"I think it suits my game as well and it's the type of football I want to play. I think we are seeing that the more we play together, the better we're playing."
