“Just look at the match against West Ham (UEFA Europa League quarter-final first leg): both scorers are players who came on.

“Xabi Alonso knows what the team needs during the match to perform well.

“We have a group of 20-25 players, not 11, and everyone gives 100% whenever they get their chance.”
