"I feel fine. It was good to get another 90 mintues under my belt and the more of them I get the better I'll feel," he said. "I'm fully aware there is huge competiton for places in midfield. I've just got to get as many minutes under my belt as I can and keep taking my opportunities when they come.
"There is great competition for places all over the pitch and the more of us that can stay fit the better it will be [for the team in the long run]."
"After last year the aim was to get ourselves through the group as quickly as possible. One more victory should see us through and hopefully we can do it in the next game in Braga with two games to spare."
