On the game

“We can be disappointed but the attitude of the players, they did the game-plan.

“In the second half we created some chances and when they scored we lost that opportunity.”

On the EPL table

“We are distant from them now but we will take time to prepare and improve and take the balance in the team.

“Manchester United and Spurs are also behind us so it is an equal competition but we have time to reduce the gap on Leicester.”

On form at Emirates Stadium

“If we can play strong at home, I know we can play well when we play away.

“We didn’t lose at home but today lost here because Leicester are at home and feel strong here.”

On criticism from fans

“I am speaking with the club to stay strong and recover. We also have young players who are growing up with us.

“I know we are receiving criticism but I have done before and I have recovered.

“I accept all the criticism. It is normal. Today we did one step ahead being better defensively.”

On recent outings

“We need to recover our confidence. We need to be patient with some circumstances and we are going to do that.”

On the back three

“I think the players felt good in that system.

“Last year we used it and we did well. It depends how we can get out best qualities and we used that system last year with a lot of good results.”
