“We’re enjoying everything that’s going on at the moment and the results have shown that. We’ve had a couple of blips but that’s nine away matches (won in a row) now, they’re not easy games, but it shows what Ole and his staff have done. Long may that continue.”

In-form striker Romelu Lukaku echoed these views, as he claimed: “I think it has been decided. I think he is going to get it. He should get it. If you look at the games that we played, everybody was talking I think after the first four games because we played, with all respect, against lesser opposition.

“But then when we won at Tottenham, Chelsea away, at Arsenal in the FA Cup, now this game today. What else does he have to do (to get the job)?”
