on a comfortable victory…
It was because we controlled the game from start to finish. We played well going forward with our movement. In the second half we controlled the game more than pushed and overall we were defensively solid. We scored five goals last week, three today - eight goals in two weeks makes me very happy.

on three out of four clean sheets…
I'm quite happy you noticed that because usually we get some bad publicity for conceding goals. I feel that we have improved but there is still some work to do. But it's better, it's solid and overall I feel that the team works well. Unfortunately now we cannot work on it because all the players go away.

on Carl Jenkinson
People forget that he only had I think 15 games at Charlton, and now maybe 10 games for us. What is so impressive is how quickly he has improved. I must say he had a very impressive game.

on Thomas Vermaelen's return…

He is settling in very well and very quickly. We have a solid defence, solid centre-backs now. We can even rotate a little bit when needed. Overall compared to one month ago it just shows how quickly football can change. If people work hard, have a good attitude and good spirit, that's what we want to continue to do.

on coming back into top four contention…

That's where we want to be, but we want to be even higher up. Let's go game by game. When you see where we came from and how much we have suffered that is a good lesson for us to keep working hard. Not so long ago people were asking me whether or not I thought we would be fighting relegation, so let's continue to work hard and not forget that.
