Post Mackems: Enrique

After putting in probably one of his best shifts in English football, looking far more stronger physically than he had before, our £6m signing from Villarreal said:

"We needed to win the game and that was very important. At times in the second half I thought we were going to win it. But we have unfortunately got to accept just one point. To fight back in the second half was great for us because I thought we played very well.

It worked well against Sunderland for myself and Jonas. It works better for me when Jonas plays on the left because we have a great understanding. He works hard and drops back to cover for me. We communicate very well and because he has played in La Liga we can bring out the best in each other.

It allows me to overlap and get forward which is what my game was all about at Villarreal. But you have to have an understanding with who you play with to be able to do it and play well. The only thing is that we have not produced enough crosses, but in the games to come I think you will see more of that.

There are some tough games coming up. But we know what we have to do. And although it is tight, the situation is in our hands."
