Ayoze Perez has had an up-and-down season so far with some inconsistent displays.
Ayoze can be an outstanding player when in form, but it’s frustrating that he doesn’t have any sort of consistency at all in his play.
But he had a good game last Saturday and worked his socks off for the side in what turned out to be a really tragic loss at Old Trafford after we were 2-0 up with just 20 minutes to play.
We could have had a third goal on Saturday when Young seemed to handle the ball from a Jonjo Shelvey free-kick.
But we didn’t get the penalty from referee Anthony Taylor – that could have made a huge difference.
Ayoze Perez – in action on Saturday
After the game Ayoze Perez was asked about the potential penalty:
“I did not see because of the wall, but I felt we should at least have had a corner,”
“But, forget about that, we were 2-0 up and heading for a magnificent result. “
“We knew they were in a difficult situation, so it’s just a pity we come away with no points.”
“There’s still a long way to go. We cannot afford to panic, especially after a performance like that.
“We realise we need a win and more points. It’s about improving the details, then we can change.”
“We’re trying to create that togetherness as much as we can,” said Perez.
“The spirit is good, but we have to stick together, train hard, keep going, keep pushing.
“Today was a step up, but, against a top side, it was not enough.
“The most important thing is we all travel in the same direction, keep pushing, all together, the most important thing is that we all stay together.”
“In two weeks, it’s a big game,” “We must beat teams like that (Brighton).”
We’re going have to put that loss behind us, but it was very hard to take – especially following our other poor results this season.
