"After a quarter of an hour, Saint-Etienne got back into it a bit but we were solid defensively and Kevin [Trapp] was important behind us. We were able to make the most of our chances and that is what made the difference. Even at 2-0, we showed a real hunger to play and score.

"I am happy for Lucas [Moura] with his double tonight. He was instrumental in attack."
