Dwight McNeil has spoken out on the change of manager and his improvement in play:
“I knew so far this season I hadn’t been at my best and low on confidence, but with the new manager coming and still half a season to go, I saw it as a fresh start. [It is about] getting back to basics and building from there - my confidence came from there. It was a good team performance as well.
I definitely want to build on this now, especially having played like that against a team as good as Arsenal. Now we need to focus on the big game that’s coming up with the derby. We have to be ready as a team.” [EFC]
