‘We can’t dwell on this, we have to move on’

There’s no denying the fact that two highly-disappointing defeats in the space of four days have dealt a severe blow to our hopes of finishing in the top four this season.

Speaking after our loss at Wolves on Wednesday evening, Alex Iwobi assessed the result at Molineux, our away form and the fight for the Champions League places.

Read on for what he said.

on his reaction to the performance…
Obviously it’s a tough one to take. It’s not a good result when we want to get in the top four, but we can’t dwell on it, we have to move on to the next game.

on losing twice in a row at this point of the season…
Yeah, it’s [disappointing] but last time we had back-to-back [league] defeats, we went on an amazing run. We’ll look at that as a confidence boost, go back to training and just focus on the next game.

on why we’re struggling away…
I don’t know what it is, I can’t pinpoint it, otherwise we would have just sorted it out. I think it’s a mental thing - we just have to keep on fighting, keep on being together as a team and just focus again on the next game.

on Man United losing and top four being wide open…
Yeah, it’s still up for grabs. We believe we have a chance, so we’ll keep going.
