Espanyol defender David López: We're in tough spot

Espanyol defender David López says a tough home defeat to Levante leaves them the only option to "pick ourselves up and go again".

The 3-1 loss leaves them rock bottom of the current LaLiga standings.

"It's a bad result for us. We were desperate to turn the situation around and move forward but it wasn't to be. We've played two matches at 2PM, with one day's less rest (than Levante), and against Getafe we played with 10-men. It's tough."

The decisive moment was Bardhi making it 2-1 to Levante.

"When we were level, we had a lot of chances. We took the game to them and, in our strongest period of the match, Bardhi scores and that hurt the team."
