“It’s normal, a striker wants to score goals, but he is recovering from a minor injury and it’s important to remember that we have another game to come,” Rangncik said.

“Also after what happened at Villa Park we had to maintain our lead this time and it was important for us to get back to five at the back and while we didn’t keep a clean sheet it was important to make sure nothing else bad happened.”
