‘I just feel that these games is what we mentioned last season are hurting us, stopping us from contending for the premier league and it’s creeping in this season already. We got away with it at Villarreal midweek, that was alarm bells there; he said on vibe on fire.
‘We dropped points beforw that, we got beat by Aston villa and then dropped points against Everton.
‘Villa and Everton, no disrespect for those teams but we should be winning these games, It’s not a given but if you want to win the league these teams get dismantled and sent back home.
‘If your sitting there four or five games ago you sit there thinking we could win the league this year, we’re looking good. But now you look at it and think we’re still getting the same type of results that messed us up last season, different personnel same results. ‘
