He replaced Enner Valencia with the dazzling Diafra Sakho against Swansea today after the Ecuador international had failed to show himself off during the first half.
And the manager said: “We get players back from injury and sometimes it’s like they’ve never been away but Valencia wasn’t as good as we know he can be so we brought our leading goalscorer on.
“Enner will be back, no doubt about that. He’ll be disappointed. But fact of the matter is there is competition for places, everyone has to continue to play at their best or someone will take their place. We have really good options on the front line.”
