Our goal is to get the best version consistently that’s going to bring us closer to winning football matches.
That’s what I want from the team. If we do that consistently in every single match, we’re going to be in a good place, but that’s something we haven’t done, consistently give the best version.
That’s something we must control and we must do, and I think if we’re able to do that, then the results will be the consequence to that.
There are two simple targets for me. One is to win the next game which is on Friday against Arsenal. Two is to finish as high as possible. We want to be positive minded and attacking for as many minutes as possible in the Premier League. That is our aim.
