Following on from doing next to nothing on Saturday, Geremi proceeded to double his workrate in giving his latest interview, this time pinpointing his expectations in the wake of the game for the upcoming double header against Arsenal and Chelsea. The Cameroonian midfielder said:

“I don’t think the fans are now expecting defeats against Chelsea and Arsenal. They have seen some nice performances from us and I really think that they are looking at those games expecting us to get something, especially when we are at home.

If we play like we did against Man United and the fans are all behind us, giving us a big lift, we have a good chance. We need the fans and they know it. A point is both good and bad. I think from the performance we deserved more. But we have to take the point because at this stage we need what points we can get.

And the point we have got has been made to look even better because of the other results on the day. After the game, seeing those results, there was a good feeling in the dressing room because of what other teams have done.

We are happy, but the most important thing is the performance. If you look at the last few matches our performances have been better, particularly the Man United one even though we didn’t get the result. After coming from behind to get a point we have to be happy. We don’t think we should be looking at this result negatively because it was a good performance.

Unfortunately, we didn’t really have the chances to score a second goal, but to get a point is good for us. That was really important because we can now really think about climbing the table.’
