“I am involved. We’ve got too several players out; today, six or seven players. I believe this is the problem within the moment, one of all the critical problems. In central midfield, for eight weeks. Today, we had our strikers out, which was the case for four weeks with Timo (Werner) and Romelu (Lukaku) out.

“We need to find the balance, be honest, critical with each other, but accept sometimes we get punished for not a lot.

“I would be additionally involved if we tend to were completely out of form, concede the primary goal and so struggle to return. It’d be easier to analyze. I don’t assume it’s too simple to analyze our situation.”

We tended to maybe 2 or 3 up and were twiddling with fire. it’s obvious we missed loads of players, big personalities, regular starters, but we are going not to use it as an excuse.”
