Henri Saivet happy with what his team-mates told him

“It was a little bit weird because I felt I was ready so I don’t know why I gave the ball away to Arnautović. He scored, though, but I loved the reaction of my team-mates. Jamaal, Yedlin and others told me it was OK, keep going and play. After that, I scored my first goal so the most important thing was the victory. That’s it. We worked hard and we knew it was a big, big game. West Ham weren’t in a good moment now. The most important thing was the victory.

“We’re very happy and we deserved the victory because the team is working hard every day. We have not had a good time because we lost some games in a row and we needed to stop losing. To come here and win against a good team is massive for us. We now need to rest and recover for Wednesday.

“I was surprised and it was exciting. There were a lot of things in my head. Five minutes before I’d give the ball away but I showed I was ready for the game. I was just happy to score for my team. We need to show character and stay strong. Everybody was talking to each other on the pitch. So these are good points for us. We need to learn so we could adjust some things. Now we play against Man City and they’re a big, big team so we must show a lot of effort.”
