After 38 games it feels hollow to say we deserved it, even with the opening three months of the season. But the difference this victory makes, means it’s only the beginning.
The players are there to challenge on one front, we know that from the big matches. But now we must invest so we can challenge on all three, and in doing so our league challenge strengthens.
It’s too early to set goals for next season. But a title challenge next season is a minimum requirement.
And a final in Madrid this time next year would be nice.
