It was very intense with both teams going for it. I felt we were a bit unlucky and their keeper had a good game.
"We were unlucky as we had to reshuffle at the back in a position where we are already short.
"I did feel at half-time we could win the game if we stayed stable at the back, and we lacked a bit of accuracy in our final ball and in the final third as well. We had a few opportunities where we didn't pass the ball well.
"Overall we had a positive performance, great spirit, quality but we lacked a little bit and that's vital in the big games."
"It will be difficult to close the gap on City, but we will try. This is a game we couldn't afford to lose and that's why it's difficult to take, but we will continue to fight and there are a lot of positives.
"The team has made a lot of progress since August and the team can be proud of it. The team has a fantastic spirit and we have shown that again.
"Let's hope we can continue our progress and get closer to City."
