He told BT Sport:

“It’s been about us, what we’re going to do and how we are going to set up rather than worrying about the opposition.

“With Mourinho, there was a lot of meetings analysing the opposition.

“The formation we are playing at the moment allows me to be freer as a box-to-box.

“I like to be the engine of the team, not just scoring goals but getting back and defending too.”
