Brentford's bravery: "It was a hard match. You can see the quality that Brentford bring and the enthusiasm and belief in what they do, as they´ve obviously had success doing it.”

Trossard: I thought Leo was fantastic today, it was a really mature performance. He carried a threat the whole time.”

First half: In the first half they were the better team. We were okay but we had to dig in in which we did. We grew into the fame in the second half and we wore them down a little bit. It was a great goal – 1-0 wins away from home are fantastic.”

Tactical change: It was an enforced but switching to a four meant we could have another body closer to their defenders. Generally, the layers player better in the second half with more control which is not easy to do against Brentford because of the atmosphere and the intensity of the opposition.”

Late winner: It was a special way to win the game, especially to score in the last minute, the emotions took over. It´s a brilliant win for us, it was really tough as Brentford are a really good side – they haven´t lost a game in the Premier League until today.”

Game analysis: “We dug in as a team, we fought for the ball and we wanted to get the clean sheet. It´s really important for the confidence of the team and I think everyone was brilliant.”

Feelings: I really wanted to enjoy this game. I feel good at the moment with the minutes I´m getting. The more games I can play the better. I will play.”

Next fixtures: We need to keep pushing each other like this every week and if we do the results will come.”
