“It’s a good day for the team and for Alvaro. It’s always important for the striker to score but for me, it’s very important for me to see he’s improving and more involved in our idea of football.
“For me this is the most important thing. Then if he scores I’m very happy, and I’m pleased for the player.”
Kante and his finishing
“N’Golo played an amazing game, but we are used to seeing this. He’s a fantastic player. He makes good runs with quality, but he’s also improving a lot his passes and his finishing.
“I think it’s very important to see that this player is improving his weaknesses step by step. N’Golo is a really top player.
“Hazard came back from injury. This is good news for us. For sure he needs time to be 100 percent, but for us his recovery is very important. We know very well the importance of this player for us.
“Now we must have patience to wait, to give him the possibility to improve his form. But I’m pleased for him because after a bad injury, it’s great to see him again with us.”
“I think Baka is improving his physical condition and also starting to understand and adapt himself our style of football. For sure he has to improve with the ball, without the ball he is very strong, in this game he helped us a lot and after the Leicester goal.
“He is a young player and a good signing for us. He has a lot of space to improve. Like N’Golo, he has to improve with the ball.
“You can see with N’Golo he has improved a lot if you compare him to last season. In the work, he wants to work and to improve.”
On the right track now?
“For us it is very important always to follow a way and this way is the work, despite our bad start against Burnley and then a bit of difficulty. I think to win three in a row is important for the players, because we are doing very well.
“In England it is not easy to win, especially if you are the champions and you start in a bad way I have great players, they are reliable and I trust them.
Did they play like champions?
“The mentality was very strong, very positive and very good until the penalty because we were in total control of the game. We scored the first goal and conceded one counter attack.
“After the penalty they tried to put a bit of pressure on but we created many chances to improve our scoreline and we must be satisfied. Now we are trying to involve the new players with the old players from last season, this is a process.
“They need time, I know that in football there is not a lot of time, but we are working very hard.”
