their boss used this phrase

“the finishing was wasteful”

but he was happy with the defense.

“We struggled at the beginning of the season for many reasons. Now four games, four clean sheets. It's so important for us to maintain this solidity,”


told BBC Sport.

“The finishing was wasteful. We know we have to improve this, but it's important to keep creating the chances. In the last 20 minutes we lost too many simple balls, which is a problem. We have to do the simple things better. That is the next step.

“Sterling scored a goal and won a penalty. It's important for the players up front to be scoring goals.

“This season looks like there will be a lot of teams in contention. Everyone can beat everyone. In this month it was important to get qualification for the Champions League, now we focus on the Premier League. It will be a long season.”

He also talked to BT sport saying:

“It's important to get a good run of points. For the chances we had, yes [we should have scored more], but it was the same in Porto.

“It's important that we won and that defenders don't make mistakes and we don't gift goals.

“It's important to win games and clean sheets are a good fact, especially with the amount of chances we created again.”
