Moreno added: "We are very glad because we planned the game to try and win three points and we did it".
"Matt Ritchie has a great delivery and it was my job to get on the end of it". There was expectation going into the game but we were second best in combats, duels, first and second balls, tactics, all aspects. "We've not played well and we've lost the game".
"We were very balanced between defence and attack and we are very pleased with the team".

"I am not a fan of zonal marking, so to see them set up like that, I thought we'd get chances", said Lascelles.
Tammy Abraham should have given Swansea the lead on the hour when he rounded goalkeeper Rob Elliot and seemed certain to apply the finish.
A new Premier League rule means players can be punished retrospectively for acts of simulation, but this is one case which will not be reviewed because Mike Jones did not fall for it and award a penalty.
