"It was emotional, a lot of passion, a lot of quality.

"It doesn't get much better than that – after the derby away, to come here against this team and play the way we played, with the performance all over the game and especially in the second half, it was incredible.

"To win it in that way makes it even better."

"We never panicked, kept believing, kept doing the same things even better than before, and we believed that at the end we could win it."

"It's great. I think we deserve to be where we are because of the way we are playing, but don't get confused – it's about what we do tonight and tomorrow.
