’s victory was so easy, with the visitors failing to strike a goal all evening.
Jordan Hugill scored two goals and sealed a comfortable win, and
“It is always difficult to compare games but I would say this was our best performance of the season so far. The lads were fantastic and I can’t praise them enough.
“We are in a great position but we are not over the moon or anything like that because there are still a lot of games to play and I expect teams like Brentford and Swansea to win their games in hand. But I am very pleased with what I saw this evening.”
spoke of Hugill:
“It was a fantastic, man-of-the-match performance from Jordan and I am delighted for him.
“He is a key player for us, even though he has had to wait for his chance. He doesn’t need to prove anything to me because everyone knows he can score goals at this level.”
Bristol City boss, Dean Holden said his team had been second best all evening.
“We were beaten by a top team tonight, undoubtedly the best team in the league. We knew all about their qualities, how well they keep the ball and how expansive they are but were hoping to take advantage when we got the ball from them. But we never really did that and didn’t create nearly enough.
“We actually started the game quite brightly and also had quite a lot of the ball in the opening stages of the second half, but overall it was a tough evening for us.
“We didn’t pass it nearly as well as we did at Preston in our last game and we need to put this behind us and try and ensure we get back to those standards against Millwall in our next game.”
“The second goal killed us and I thought the game should have been stopped when Jordan Hugill put his arm across Tommy Rowe and he went down. But having said that I can’t complain about the result.”
