The former United striker explained: “You always adapt to any opponent, we play one of the best teams in the league, have to be aware of their strengths but we need to attack teams, that’s our strength as well.”
“Going forward, attacking both as a team and the way we played, we won’t get as many chances to attack against these as we’ve had before so we’ve got to be ready for when we got hold of the ball and play well with it because Wembley is a decent sized pitch.”
“I think every single day and every game will get us closer and closer and we’ll get more of an understanding of how we want to play.”
“The past five games haven’t been bad but there’s always things to work on, relationships, cohesion, so hopefully we’ll see a positive team.”
