Sunday’s victory at Manchester City made it six matches unbeaten when we’ve returned to league action after a European game.Always a tough task, we’ve won five and drawn one of those six matches after UEFA Cup action - here they are…

A 0-0 draw against Fulham after Slavia Prague away.
A 2-1 win against Portsmouth after the home leg against Slavia.
A 1-0 win against West Ham after the trip to Besiktas.
We beat Chelsea 2-1 after Club Brugge.
A 3-1 win against Wigan after Bayer Leverkusen.
And now a 2-1 win at City after Dinamo Bucharest.

“It is certainly worth a compliment,” said Martin Jol after Sunday’s win at Eastlands. “Last season everyone commented that all the teams in Europe struggled on the Sunday afterwards.

“We’ve done well and showed a lot of character - we’ve lost two games in 19 now and that’s good momentum.”
