We'll give everything - Lewis

Lewis Holtby says the team is determined 'to show a different face' as we return to the Lane to take on Manchester United on Sunday.

Last weekend’s defeat at City has been well documented and the lads took the first step on the road to recovery with a 2-0 win against Tromso IL in the Europa League on Thursday night. That made it five wins in five in Group K and secured top spot.

The next step is back into the Premier League arena as the champions arrive for a 12noon kick-off.

Even though we’ve lost back-to-back league games, only one point separates the teams as United sit sixth and we’re ninth going into this weekend. We remain just four points behind Liverpool in second.

“We did the job in Tromso, won 2-0, kept a clean sheet and got through to the last 32 in first place,” said Lewis, who came off the bench in the second half and helped create Mousa Dembele’s goal. “That was positive and now we face United.

“It will be a tough game and we’ll put everything into it - everything has to be at 100 per cent against United or it will be difficult.

“We’ve spoken about the City game and we’re all determined to show a different side of the team, a different face.

“We’re capable of winning this game and we’ll give everything.”
