WE'LL PLAY OUR GAME - WILLIAM

William Gallas insists we’ll play our normal game in our Europa League, Round of 32 second leg in Lyon on Thursday.
We travel to the Stade de Gerland with a 2-1 lead from last week’s first leg at the Lane.
Lyon beat Bordeaux 4-0 on Saturday to remain second in Ligue 1 with goals from Clement Grenier (2), Alexandre Lacazette and Gueida Fofana. Remi Garde made three changes for that match, including starting Grenier.
William insists our ability to score on our travels – we’ve only failed to register twice this term, at Lazio and QPR – can stand us in good stead in France.
“We have to play our game and we can score at any time,” said William.
“We don’t have to try to come back to London with a 0-0 scoreline, because if they score and we then fail to score, we’ll be out.
“If we put them under pressure straight away they will be wary because if they concede a goal, they will be in trouble. We have to play our game, the way we play all the time and then I think then we can qualify.”
