'We want to be chasing the title until the end - Setien

'We want to be chasing the title until the end - Setien

Barcelona manager Quique Setien has revealed his side will put the defeat of the cup game behind them when they face Real Betis later today.

The recently appointed manager will be facing his old club and will hope his side can end their three away game winless run at his former home.

Speaking ahead of the game, Setien emphasized the improvement of his side and claim they are on the right track and will fight for the title till the end.

'It's about the dynamic of how this team has been playing away from home for some time,' Setien said.

'The other day I thought we improved a lot but unfortunately, the result didn't go our way.'

"We need to try to take the good conclusions from that game and it's a question of getting back out onto the pitch, playing another game. There's not much time to dwell on your sorrows at this club. You need to be fresh and lucid.

"We've improved a lot. We're seeing continuity but the three points are important because we want to be chasing for the title until the end.

"It's time to ratify the improvement in the cup at a really difficult ground. We were hurt by losing the cup game but we've learned a lot from it."

Setien also talked about the situation of Alex Collado and Riqui Puig whom many fans think are supposed to be getting more playing time in order to aid their development as they are the future of the club.

'They are two very different kinds of players," Setien told reporters

'We try to think which player we need most at certain times of the game. They're two very good players and they've both got chances to play. We're getting to know them better every day.'

'We're seeing what they're capable of doing for us in every training session. It's a time of learning.'

'With Riqui, there are a lot of players in the position where he would normally play but Collado, playing upfront, he's going to get chances. We'll have to see how things go.'
