It's OK. Defeats are part of our work and it’s not possible to always win. Our aim is to win more than we lose.
We have one after every game, whether that’s a win or a loss, we always review the match and that match was no exception. We look at our mistakes and try to understand why we lost, and where and in what we should improve.
We will think, but it’s not catastrophic. Before the start of the season, everyone said it was going to be a difficult season and that the other sides have caught us up. This is a difficult season for us and our job is to do what we have to do, and then we’ll see how the season goes.
From a football point of view, they were different matches. We played worse than our best in the first half against Dynamo, but played well in the second half. Agsinst Lokomotiv, it similar, maybe we played a little better in the second half than in the first, but, unfortunately, the number of chances how well we played didn’t show in the result. We deserved a different result, but this happens in sport, and quite often.
It depends on which seasons you’re comparing it with, compared to our best season? Then yes, to our worst, then we have conceded less. We’ve been worse in some areas than in previous seasons, and in others we’ve remained at the same level. I don't see much difference.
Of course, the early start of the match is inconvenient for both the players and the fans. However, the conditions are the same for both sides so we will play the game as is.
Yes, we are watching them. When preparing for matches against teams, we have more of a chance to look at the players. With the exception of Mikhailov, who just move there, all the others have played quite a few matches.
There is no Mikhail Kerzhakov or Slava Karavaev today. Andrey Mostovoy is only in partial training and is a doubt for the match. Kerzhakov and Karavaev have some issues and are also both doubts.
He had been training with the team, but he’s not 100% ready yet, he has a varied training workload, some training sessions with the team, and some individually. We want him in a good condition and 100% ready.
