The manager signed an eight-year contract in September but has lost four straight games and maintains that there is little the club can do until January after a series of injuries
The manager claims that his employers are offering their assistance with the squad currently suffering due to a host of injuries, which is troubling for the team as they attempt to compete in the Europa League as well as at home.
"I can't think of a Premier League team in the last couple of years that has suffered as badly as we have with injuries"
"They've given me massive support this week in trying to help me get the result I want, almost asking me what can they do for me?
"At the minute there's not much they can do for me, if truth be known. Little things here and there we talked about could help but they've been very forthcoming in that.
"Unfortunately for us we've had a real turn of events in terms of injuries. I can't think of a Premier League team in the last couple of years that has suffered as badly as we have in terms of key players. You can almost look in every position."

"In my view, the January window isn't something we can focus on at the minute in terms of a target. We have to keep our eye on every position and make sure that in January we react to who we get back because one or two will come back, for sure."
