What they’re saying:
Scott Parker, on life in the top flight: “This year, our league is our mini-league and at this present moment in time the way it is we’re about three points off of being top of our mini league. The facts are fourth from bottom this year is going to be a huge success and that’s our aim and at this present moment in time we need to be comfortable being in and around this position because that’s where we are. I feel we’ve had a real confidence and been really brave in the way that we’ve played definitely. But certainly, and I think I said it after the Leeds game, sometimes we are maybe a little bit naive and that’s something we need to improve on.”
Slaven Bilic, on signs of improvement: “We are still waiting for our first win but we are getting points and we are growing as a team. It is a process and we continue to learn, but we are doing well. We are becoming more resilient and that has pleased me. The last couple of games we have been at least 50-50 in terms of possession and chances with our opponents. That makes the group really positive. We are erasing those little questions marks. The best way to reduce them is to play well, to pick up points and the players proving themselves on an individual basis in the Premier League.”
