"Most importantly, I was at the Chelsea game in the Conti Cup semi-final and we have to be very wary of that with the pace of someone like Nikita Paris on the break".
"But we're a completely different team [now]". I've got senior players around me who have done this. It's nice for me to feel comfort from them on the day.
