McArthur: Plenty Of Positives

26 April 2017

James McArthur was disappointed that the side didn’t take something from the game against title chasing Tottenham Hotspur as he felt the display warranted a share of the points.

“It was gutting for us all to lose after all we put into the game but we go again as we have another tough game coming up on Saturday against Burnley and now have a couple of days to try and prepare for that one.

"We defended very well as a team but they put us under a lot of pressure , we did limit them to chances outside the box and they scored with one of those, a very good strike.”

The midfielder was pleased to be back in the starting line-up and feels going into another crucial game on Saturday that the squad have plenty of positives to take from their current run of form.

“It was nice to be back, that feeling of playing again is very nice and I need to just try and get myself back in the side again.

“We still need to pick up points and try and finish as high as we possibly can. There were a lot of positives from tonight’s performance, you have to look at how solid we look as a team and added to that the threat of Wilf and Andros together with Benteke scoring goals of late so plenty to take from our game at the moment.”
