Their win against United will see them win the Premier League title but defeating his former boss doesn’t matter to him.

‘I really don’t care,’ he continued. ‘It’s just part of football – it goes up and down. In the 10 years I’ve been playing, nine-and-a-half years have been up and a half-year has been a bit down.’
