Chong: It's a brilliant night for us
Second-half substitute Tahith Chong was delighted to have contributed an assist in our win over Brugge...
Excellent performance, what did you make of it? Yeah, I think from the start the way we got after them and I think you can just feel the first five to 10 minutes straightaway there’s a goal coming. We got the first goal and then continue from there, it’s just a brilliant night for us really. Was that the gameplan to really get into them early? Because it seemed like right from the start we were flooding forward… Yeah I think 100% that was the gameplan really get after them and score some goals. We played some good football first half, so it’s brilliant to see. Bruno Fernandes showing what a great signing he is... From the get go when he signed, we’ve seen him every day in training as well. He’s just been different class really. Ighalo, that must be so special? You see him every day and he’s been amazing straightaway, a great character and that’s the same as Bruno as well. Sometimes it’s difficult to keep up that intensity in the second-half... Yeah, during half-time the manager spoke to us and said keep it going. Score some goals and enjoy playing in these type of games. You got plenty of the ball in the second half… The boys have done a good job looking for me and trying to get me into the game. I really enjoyed that 45 minutes and it was good to get on the pitch. And you got an assist as well for Fred? Two goals for Fred! He started laughing, it’s amazing for him to get a goal as he does a very good job in midfield, winning the ball and playing it forward. For him to get two goals is amazing. We made changes tonight but look at the performance, there must be competition for places now… Yeah, that’s a positive I think everyone here is trying to push each other. As a team that’s how you get better, from the games, from training, keep working hard and pushing each other. It’s the draw tomorrow, I don’t think anyone’s going to want to draw United are they? I think from seeing this performance a lot of teams are going to think ‘oh we’ve got to Old Trafford’ For us we keep pushing, but the main focus is the Premier League and Everton now.
