Lossl picks positives from United loss

27th December 2018, 13:20 by Craig Smithson

Huddersfield must stay positive and maintain their "spirit" after their "good" display at Manchester United, according to Jonas Lossl.

The Terriers goalkeeper was pleased as David Wagner's side produced a performance that belied their position at the bottom of the Premier League on Boxing Day and threatened to leave Old Trafford with a point.

The Terriers started the second half on top but David De Gea's outstanding save to prevent Laurent Depoitre levelling proved crucial, with Paul Pogba swiftly scoring a brace in a 3-1 victory that saw Mathias Jorgensen snatch a late consolation.

Put to Lossl that opposite number De Gea's save changed the match, he said: "Yeah, definitely. Big fan and I told him afterwards.

"He's great goalkeeper, it was a fantastic save. We didn't score with a couple of small chances we had, and they did.

"Of course they had more chances, more possession than we had today, but I think we did alright. I think we did a good game. We did our best."

Lossl believes there are plenty of positives to take from the Boxing Day clash - even if it was their sixth straight Premier League loss.

Huddersfield lie bottom of the standings and five points from safety, making Saturday's trip to Fulham and the home clash against Burnley next week crucial.

"We have two very important games coming up, not only one," Lossl added. "Of course we look forward now to the one on Saturday against Fulham. It's going to be a big game.

"We have to (have spirit), right? We have to. We earn the shirt, we are representing the club. We have to keep the spirit.

"That's our job and it's one of our strong sides. We have a good team and we go into every game with bravery and morale, so we'll keep doing that."
