"We kept trying by bringing fresh players on for the same attacking positions. Mauricio did the same. He brings Sissoko and Son off for Llorente and Dembele, without changing the structure. So I think we were both trying to win, but we knew that one defensive mistake and we could lose the match, which happened to them. But I think that was a consequence of us pushing a little bit more, especially in the second half. In the beginning of the game we were really strong, but after 15-20 minutes balance came to the match. And then in the second half, we had the wind in our favour and tried to get behind them. We created more problems for them with Rashford’s movement. Then when he was tired we brought Martial who is better running with the ball. We tried and I think we deserved the victory."
