After beating Huddersfield, he said: "We need to keep fighting until the end, we need to keep going.
"Years ago we lost a title that we were eight points ahead and there were only six games left, now we have a lot more games to play and we need to keep fighting.
"We knew Alexis, he has now years playing at the highest level in the Premier League, and that is why he is here.
"He showed he is a great player and we hope he continues like this.
"Of course because of the way Alexis plays, always wanting the ball, he always wants to show what he can do and that is important for us."
