The Lyon coach looks back on the convincing victory of his players against AS Monaco (4-1) this Sunday. The victory over ASM: “We led 4-0 at the break. We scored four times on our four shots on target, ten in total in the first period. Before, we were unusually unsuccessful. And now, we are more than successful, or more than realistic ... But that proves that we were right not to worry. We had a lot of chances, we didn't score. It ended up happening. But I don't forget that Anthony Lopes made at lea



The victory over ASM

: “We led 4-0 at the break.

We scored four times on our four shots on target, ten in total in the first period.

Before, we were unusually unsuccessful.

And now, we are more than successful, or more than realistic ... But that proves that we were right not to worry.

We had a lot of chances, we didn't score.

It ended up happening.

But I don't forget that Anthony Lopes made at least two big saves in the first half.

We might have liked to have had a better second period.

But I liked two things: that we had plenty of chances and we defended much better and prevented Monaco from causing problems for our goalkeeper.

It is also satisfying.

We made good use of the spaces.

It's very good because we win 4-1 against a direct competitor.

The only downside is the expulsion of Melvin Bard, which I find very severe ... But that's it.

(...) Apart from the first period for Lorient, I think we have almost always had as many chances as tonight.

But we were non-prolific. ”

Two points from the podium

: “We are not yet where we want to be in the standings.

We are sixth after this victory.

We will have to be able to get a result in Lille.

When we play direct competitors like tonight or next Sunday, it's a bit like our Champions League this season ... Like today, we will have to be able to be present, to raise our level and to be a protagonist, even in Lille. ”

OL's somewhat cautious strategy

: “You have to be smart.

We look at the numbers.

And the figures show that Monaco are the worst team in the championship when it comes to handling quick attacks and goals conceded on quick attacks.

When you see that, and the pictures prove it, it makes sense to try to have a little space to exploit.

Which we did very well because I find that there was a lot of connivance and combined play between our attackers.

It is almost always our attackers and our offensive players in the good shots.

And it is very good.

Moussa Dembélé is also back home. "

"Memphis Depay pulls the team up, he plays his role of captain"

Memphis Depay

: “We know the player he can be.

He pulls the team up, he plays his role of captain.

Everything is very good for the moment regarding his involvement.

He also defended a lot.

Everyone works.

And after that, there is talent in this team ... And Memphis is one of the leaders, it's true. "

The state of mind

: “What is certain is that it works well in training.

I said before the game that if we played this Sunday as we trained during the week, that would be a good omen.

And it was verified.

We must continue to keep the players under pressure.

We have a young group overall, although two experienced players have arrived, Djamel Benlamri and Mattia De Sciglio.

It is also important.

To keep your feet on the ground and the quality of your work.

We must not fall asleep.

It will be very difficult in Lille but we will go there to achieve a result and continue the series.

We have time to see that between now and next Sunday. ”

Karl Toko-Ekambi

: “As long as it lasts!

He is there ... He is a player who works, he is the prototype of the modern striker.

He is capable of eliminating, he goes very quickly, we can serve him in depth, he knows how to combine with others.

Since he arrived last January, it's been a satisfaction.

He had quickly scored after his arrival, and afterwards, he especially lacked success.

He touched the posts a lot.

Against Juventus and at the start of the season too ... Now he is more successful, it's good for him and for us. "

“We don't do the results at eleven, but at least at sixteen.

And even at 20! "

This time, Lyon held

 : “We also learned especially from Strasbourg, where we were leading 3-0 and on the start of our third goal we let Strasbourg score ... We didn't want to repeat that.

The players did not let Monaco score at 3-0, but we put in a fourth.

It shows that we are progressing.

And we don't do the results at eleven, but at least at sixteen.

And even at 20!

Today, we have also won the communication battle.

I would say unfortunately, because I would prefer no one to hear us in the stadium, that would mean that Groupama Stadium would be full and that we would have our supporters.

But as this is not the case, I think we have to show how much we want to win on the pitch.

And the staff, the substitutes, we were also very good on that, to encourage each other.

When we are one like that, we can be very strong.

This cohesion must last.

The five who come out must be happy that five others replace them and bring more to the team.

It has to be like that. "
