“Sometimes I go over the top when they’ve not played well and probably sometimes I do when they have played well, but tonight… it was a stunning performance.

“They were excellent, every one of them, I’m really proud of them. We talked about one of the key objectives before the game and I asked ‘can we keep a clean sheet?’

“We said how important the start is. They had an experienced side out, it’s the strongest side they’ve put out against us since I’ve been involved.

In Brief: Swansea City U23s 0 Leicester City 3

Enjoy all three goals from the Development Squad's 3-0 victory at Swansea City in Premier League 2.

“I think six players played with league experience, Championship experience, and I think one player has played in the Premier League so they were a strong side with three overage players.

“We said – certainly in the first 15 minutes - we’ve got to make sure that we manage the game right and we keep a clean sheet in those first 15 minutes.

“We were very, very comfortable in the first half, I can’t remember Viktor [Johansson] having a save to make and we were absolutely camping in their half, it was a great attacking display.”
