‘We played a humble game, a mature game’
Another game, another clean sheet for us.
David Luiz was at the heart of the defence as we claimed our fifth shoutout in nine games as we beat Olympiacos.
Afterwards, he faced the media and this is what he said:
on the win...
It was a good result for us. It's so difficult to play here against an amazing team with an amazing coach, amazing atmosphere. It was difficult but I think we played a mature game where we tried not to concede and we knew when we had to defend.
They are a good team. They did well in the Champions League against amazing teams and they showed tonight that they have great ideas in football. But we played a humble game, a mature game, and understood that we needed to defend as a team. It's a good result but it's not finished yet.
on whether we deserved to win...
It's fair. They started well for the first 15 minutes but we played better after that and created more clear chances than them.
on what Mikel Arteta said at half-time...
We just tried to understand what happened in the first half. This picture of understanding the first half is much better when you have the humility to learn and try to change things in the second half.
