One step at a time

Heurelho Gomes believes the key to success is keeping things simple and just focusing on the next game as we battle on three fronts.

A trip to Newcastle is up next in the Premier League on Saturday while there is our FA Cup Fourth Round tie at Fulham and our Champions League Round of 16 clash with AC Milan on the horizon.

But the goalkeeper believes the only way to keep up our fantastic form, which has seen us lose just once in the last 14 games, is by taking it each game, and each competition, at a time.

He said: “I think we have done great so far this season, now we just need to keep going. It is not easy to play Premier League, Champions League and FA Cup matches, but as long as we focus on each game then we will be fine.

“We mustn’t look ahead to playing Milan in Europe or Fulham in the FA Cup, we must concentrate on the next game. We must keep going, keep strong, we know how difficult it is but we are ready for this.

“It depends on us to keep it going, but we can do it because we have a great squad in full confidence. We just need to keep winning games and picking up the points.”

It looks set to be one of the fiercest battles for places at the top of the Premier League in recent history, and we find ourselves right in the thick of it with just eight points separating us in fifth place and leaders Manchester United.

Gomes is determined for us to make the most of our situation by staying focused and not letting the coming months pass us by.

He added: “The second half of the season can go so fast and before you know it, the season is finished and we haven’t achieved our goals. That is something we cannot allow to happen. Focus is the key to our success now if we are to finish well.

“All the players know how important these next few months are. They are important to us, the coaching staff, the club and of course, the supporters.”
