Praet Thrilled With Scoreline
Dennis Praet talks to LCFC TV after his side's 5-0 victory over Newcastle United in the Premier League...
“I think we played a good game,” Praet told LCFC TV. “In the first half, we created some chances and we could have done better.
“But in the second half, against 10 men, we pressed them high and we created a lot of chances. At the end, it’s 5-0, so we are all very happy.”
Praet replaced the injured James Maddison in midfield for the clash with Newcastle United, and was pleased that City once again showcased their strength in depth as they surged to their biggest-ever Premier League win.
I’m happy when I can play. It’s always like that. We have a very good team, we have a strong bench also, and that’s also very important.Dennis Praet LCFC TV
He added: “I’m happy when I can play. It’s always like that. We have a very good team, we have a strong bench also, and that’s also very important.
“I think we saw that also against Luton, but we have a deep squad and that’s important. Whenever the gaffer gives me a chance to play, I try to do my best.”
