Javier Hernandez has talked up our chances of progressing through to the next round of the Europa League although acknowledges we’ve got an uphill battle against Athletic Bilbao tonight.
“We know we need to score two goals, but it’s also important for us not to concede,” Hernandez said. “We need to be patient. We know the style of Athletic. They pass the ball around, they have a lot of energy and they press their opponents. We have to work hard – harder than them. We have another opportunity to get through tomorrow and we want to keep fighting. It’s a difficult challenge but we want to keep the faith and we want to work very hard to get the result we need.”
