‘You could see how excited they were at the end that we are top of the league. My job and our job is to know that it is a long season and the next question is how consistent can we be with this form, how much can we improve because I believe there is lot more we can do, and there will be a lot of challenges ahead.
‘I’ll enjoy the evening. I will have a small glass of wine, maybe a large one, but at the same time we need to make sure we stay grounded – but there were a lot of good things.
‘To play against Leeds with the form they are in, and the type of team they are, and to be that dominant in terms of chances was a real great performance from us.’
The first of those chances was taken, almost inevitably it seems given the run of form he is in this week, by Olivier Giroud.
‘His performance was great, off the back of the Seville performance,’ praised his manager.
‘He’s a reference for us as a front man, and when balls come into the area he has the ability to be cool and clinical with his finishing, although to be fair he might have had two or three more goals today. People will always question me about who I play up front because I have options. When Oli is there I know I can rely on him and today he was huge.’
