He told the club's official website: "I've said many times that I don't set the standards at the club, the players do.
"The problem is now I expect more of the same and better. It means I know the team can play very well and I don't want that for just 45 minutes or an hour, I want it for the full 90. But there is an excellent work ethic here, one of the best I've ever experienced and they push each other to the limit which is fantastic."
"Will the result decide our season? No, so it's not a must-win game. It's something we want to get something from and we'll prepare as we normally do.
"They've probably got one of the best away records in the division while we have got a good record at home so something will have to give."
