“The big challenge is to play good, to try to control the start point. It’s hard, because it’s United at Old Trafford. We want to try to play our game. The focus is going there relaxed and knowing that if we don’t win the individual duels, it will be almost impossible to beat them. We will try to play well, to play good football, what we have done, to be what we are. So I would like to finish the game and go to the locker room and feel we were what we have been for the season. As for the result, nobody knows what is going to happen. We will try to find the best way to play well and to win the game. Winning, drawing or losing on Sunday, we are not going to win or lose the Premier League. It’s December. It’s an important game, because it’s United. You can get points and deny your opponent points. But it’s the same for them. We just focus on what we have to do to make a good performance and try to win the game. That is all I am concerned about. I am not going into the game thinking: ‘OK, we have an eight-point lead.’ The Premier League is a marathon. We haven’t even arrived at the halfway stage yet. There are a lot of points to play for, more than 70. We just focus on the game, and the result, and then after, recovery and then thinking about Swansea three days later. It’s simple like that. It’s about going there and doing our game. That is what I want to see from my players.”
