Muntari Happy With Performance

Muntari Happy With Performance

Muntari collected a yellow card and an assist for Gyan's goal in the second half but he never collected all three points.

Muntari will be hoping for better fortunes against Spurs this Saturday after seeing his new team blow two winning leads.

'It was not a good feeling because we wanted to win and get three points,' he said.

'For the past week I have been training with them and they are fantastic guys and it is amazing here so we are going to have a good season.

'I am very happy to be back but all the same it is a bit sad.

'But we have a good manager and the guys are good and we are determined to win the next game.

'I thought some of our football and movement and passing was good at times, however, not being able to handle balls played into our box cost us the match.

'We controlled the game for long periods so that is why the result is so painful because we couldn't hold on.

'We are not happy with the result so now we will put it aside and look to the next game (at home to Tottenham next weekend).

'It is our job to move on from this. If you lose a game it is not the end of your life, there is more to come.

'We will go home and prepare for Spurs, which we want to win at all costs.'
