"It doesn't matter if it's the Premier League, FA Cup or if it's in training, I try to score always. Today is a perfect day, we won, I scored and I'm very happy."

On the match, Andone said: "We deserved the victory.

"We were very focused and we were better than them. This is the way - to keep fighting and working every match to have this feeling of winning.

"I'm very proud of my team-mates and this is the way we need to follow.

"Momentum is very important. This is a different competition but, for us, it is just one game more."
