After much talk about our home form in the build up to Saturday’s game against Liverpool, Pascal Gross was delighted to secure three points in front of our supporters.
Roberto De Zerbi had spoken before the game about picking up more points at the Amex and his team delivered on that with a stunning 3-0 victory over the Reds, our fourth win in nine home league games this season.
“The fans deserve it,” Pascal said. “We don’t always get the results that we want at home. It’s a good result and I hope they enjoyed the day.

“It’s up there with the best performances we’ve ever had in the Premier League. We’ve had special moments in the Premier League and that’s one of them.
“At the moment we don’t seem to have a problem scoring goals, but we have to keep working. It’s not easy and in the first half against Liverpool we should have been in front, but we weren’t so clinical. We came out and kept pushing which isn’t always easy. We deserved to win.”
De Zerbi’s team have scored three or more goals in seven of their 15 games since his arrival, which Pascal puts down to the bravery he and his teammates show in possession.
“It’s a unique way to play, but it’s very enjoyable. We play bravely, we give each other options, we have an idea of how we can beat our opponent based on what they do. The head coach is crazy about football in a positive way. We all enjoy it, we all have fun.
“He is obsessed. We know in every situation what to do and you can see that on the pitch.
“He wants everyone to be on the same page, there is no first XI, we are a whole squad all working together. If we’d had different players on the pitch on Saturday I don’t think it would have made a difference.”
