On the penalty

It looked a clear penalty, I will have to watch it again. I can understand they are disappointed.

[Ramsey] didn’t throw himself on the ground. He said he wanted to flick the ball on and was pushed in the back.

Important victory at Turf Moor

After the win against Tottenham, it was important to go away a win and that’s what we did.

We kept a clean sheet. Burnley were really up for it. We won 1-0 and I want to congratulate my three centre-backs.

Second half Sanchez tactical switch

I pushed him more through the middle, he was much more influential. Second half he was much more dangerous.

Summing up

I believe the first half was very even. It took us a while to get into the pace of the game

Second half I felt was all us. They had much more problems. We pushed ourselves a bit higher up. Even if we missed our final ball.

They defended very well. They are very clever, very direct. You understand why they have 22 points.

Where’s Ozil?

I don’t know, I haven’t seven seen him. The doctor came to see me and said he had to travel back home, he was in the hotel with us.

Will he be available for Wednesday? Certainly he will be short for Wednesday? We will see what it is exactly.
