“We are doing well, we won 3-0 after a good performance and need to continue like this," the Belgian told Sky Italia.
“It was special for me, as I had been out for almost four months, so it was a real pleasure to be back in the starting XI.
“We want to play every game the way we did tonight. The ball didn't want to go in during the first half, otherwise it would've been all over by then, but we broke through eventually and won 3-0."
