"Things are still very hard for us and there's a lot of work to do, but I think people can see that we are progressing".

Gayle should have done much better when he headed well wide after good work down the left from Perez, who could find neither power nor direction with an effort from the right of the box after Swansea again surrendered possession.

"We will make it hard for them [Liverpool and Arsenal]".

"I think we had 57% possession but we also tried to move the ball into the spaces to create damage to the defensive organisation of Newcastle".
