What’s the latest team news and how careful are you going to have to be with Saka’s injury?
Everybody was fine after the game. We will assess them this morning. Regarding B, in the next two days we will know if he is available to play against West Ham and after that we’ll make a decision on what to do.
What’s the thing you hope your team takes forward from the Olympiacos game?
Basically that we have to maintain the standards that we set, in particular when we are in possession of the ball. We had too many situations where we didn’t discriminate or make the right decision. I think execution-wise we weren’t at our best.
How important is it that you’re much closer to your best with the season that West Ham are having?
Yeah, we know we’re going to have a really tough game. They’re in great form. They’ve been really consistent. They know really well what to do and how to hurt opponents. I know David really well and I’m sure he’s going to prepare a really difficult game against us.

Does it surprise you that you’re battling with West Ham?
Not really. I think they have a really strong squad, a great manager and coaching staff. They have given him some time. They started the season with some doubts but I know what David is capable of doing. He gets the club together, working really hard for eachother. I think they have recruited really well and you can start to see that David’s done. Obviously they have a little bit more time during the weeks to prepare football matches and training. I think they’re in great form and they’re a really dangerous team.
