"I’m trying to help the team as much as I can. I know I can be a threat from set-pieces. I work hard in training and I have got the technical staff to help me with that,"

"We know this season we can score many goals, from open play but also set-pieces. It’s working at the minute but we have to keep going like that."

Asked about the team’s mentality, Zouma responded:

"Everyone is happy. We knew it was going to be difficult. Leeds are a great team and they scored very early in the game, but we kept the belief and kept playing our game. 

"We deserved more in the first half, we had more chances, but it finished 3-1 and, by the way, I’m happy to score another goal!"
