on Fraser Forster's performance...Yeah, I think we had the chances to score but the keeper played well. Today the reality is that we lost so we cannot talk too much about it.

on injuries...We know the plan, we know what we have to do, of course, [some of] the main players are missing but yeah, we need to give our best so we don't feel they're missing.

on maintaining belief...We need to believe, I think that's the first thing. We need to stick together. We've been through this so we can do it again.

on Arsenal supporters...Yeah, big thank you to the fans for travelling with us and they are always behind us so we need to say thank you to them and we need them. They need to stay behind us because we will turn this [around].
