“I consider this period really, really bad. An unfortunate period. We had injured players and suspended players and I hope after the international break all the players will be back. We are going to work on the defensive aspect. I hope to see my team play like they did at the start of the season,” says Ancelotti. [RBM]

“I think we’ve got what we need to be there [Champions League] next year. For qualifying, we need willingness to play, we have to be hungry to succeed in every game. I believe all players need to have that same feeling. We need to follow the same path. Carlo Ancelotti is a king in terms of European football,” says James Rodríguez. [BT Sport]
We go again, Lucas!
“[Moise Kean] has a big heart, he puts on intensity. He is not afraid, he is courageous. He does what is necessary. I wouldn’t want to be a defender against him right now, it’s really hard to play against him. It’s very important for us because we miss that in certain times,” says PSG manager Thomas Tuchel.

“I personally don’t think it was [a penalty]. I think maybe I fouled Jordan [Pickford] first. I did put a hand into his chest when he went to catch the ball and I did feel contact on my knee. I felt like I probably pushed Jordan before and I know everyone’s probably trying to jump on him dropping the ball but I did feel like I pushed him. I’d say [a penalty] would have been a little bit soft,” says Harry Maguire. [Man Utd]
