"Going down to 10 men can sometimes work for or against you but I thought how the players dealt with that and managed the game was outstanding because you need to be able to press the game and work arguably even harder.

"In the second half the players showed a wonderful appetite to do that. We pressed it so hard, were hungry in the game and hungry for goals. A clean sheet, five really good goals and a really good day for us."

How often do we hear that? "When a team goes down to ten men they are harder to beat."

If that is the case ... how many managers have found themselves trailing in a game and suddenly decided to take off one of the players and not replace him?
