Ricardo: We Needed That
LCFC TV caught up with Ricardo Pereira after a stellar performance in a 4-1 victory over West Ham at King Power Stadium on Wednesday night.
"It was important to play well and to take the three points. We know in the last game we played well but we didn’t win.
"We had to do the same as last week but with being more clinical and fortunately we did it.
"The third goal was very important. After that, we controlled the game again and we upped the tempo and we just managed the game."
Ricardo's third Premier League goal of the season was among his best, a fearsome drive, following an incisive pass from the impressive Barnes.

"It was very good to get back in the goals and an assist, and above all helping the team," the Portugal international full-back added.
"I was getting ready before the ball arrived, not go up and I tried to put my body straight to the ball to hit the target and fortunately it was in.
"It was good, I assisted him [Barnes], he assisted me. That’s good for him to score again and to keep going with this momentum.
"Very good, we wanted to come back to wins, and to keep adding points and we were very happy with our game."
