Ole reacts to United 1 Chelsea 3
Watch as the boss discusses Eric Bailly, Harry Maguire, our display and refocusing on the Premier League run-in...
How is Eric Bailly? “We hope he’ll be fine. A cut up in his head and he felt a little bit wounded by that. A big moment in the game, yeah that was a big moment and then obviously the long layoff was a big test and we didn’t pass it because we lost our concentration and conceded a goal just before half time, which was disappointing.” And how is Harry Maguire after taking a knock to the head? “Yeah Harry’s fine, that was a cut above the eye so he’ll be fine.” What are your thoughts on the performance? “Of course you lose the game you’re very disappointed. We had the first half that we expected, two teams that knew each other really well. Waited a bit for each other, nothing really happened until the long layoff and their goal and of course that’s disappointing that we go into half time 1-0 down but tried to make a change, a positive change, but it didn’t work.” West Ham on Wednesday - how difficult or easy is it to move past this disappointment? “That’s the way of a football’s life, you need to get over this. We’ve made a few changes today, fresh legs, we’ll be ready for Wednesday. We know how huge them two games are, they’re going to be massive for us and we’re looking forward to it. We’ve been great in the last few months giving ourselves a chance going into the last two games. We always said that if we can get into the Leicester game needing to beat them, that would be a great achievement and we might be able to even go one step further than that if we get a good result against West Ham.” Will this result make the team hungrier to win the Europa League? “Definitely. You want to win everything and very disappointed in the dressing room, but we need to be better in these big games when it matters. We know that, we’ll have to take that on the account of learning again that we get ready for the next big ones, we’ve got two in four days coming up and we’ve got the four coming up.”
