Marcelo Bielsa

warned his players against thinking they have made it in the Premier League.

“We have only been in this league for 16 games and there are still many challenges and many tests we have to pass before we can legitimately say we belong.

“Every game in this league is a challenge, all the teams have secrets and capacities. There are few games you can think of where there are very few difficulties to resolve.

“We have to keep doing the same and keep doing it over a longer period of time. We have had a lot of highs and lows. Only two games ago we had an important defeat and our idea is to play in a consistent manner.

“The team was very efficient – from eight chances we scored five goals and we managed to score five, even if one of the goals was not through our own doing.”
