We’re doing so well. We’ve had some fantastic results in the Champions League and Premier League and it’s important to remember how well we’re doing and that we don’t get carried away with a defeat.”Listen, when people say that on social media that’s their own opinion — they’re entitled to that — but inside the club and as players we know how good we are. We know how far we can go. We have belief, regardless of the result.”It shows just how well we’re doing this year to even be considered title contenders, and to be standing here disappointed that we aren’t closer to the top than we’d expect, it just shows us how far we’ve come and how well we’re doing.”We have high expectations ourselves and when we don’t come away with a win against Wolves at home, we get frustrated at that. It just shows how high our standards are set as a club at the moment and how ambitious we are.” About the authorFreddie TaylorShare the loveHave your saylast_img
