Escriba: Winning over unbeaten run

Fran Escriba insists Villarreal are only focused on beating Eibar this weekend as opposed to extending their unbeaten start to the season.

Villarreal have yet to lose a match in La Liga under Escriba and know victory over Eibar on Sunday would propel them into fourth at the expense of Sevilla.

“I’m not concerned about our unbeaten record but rather us picking up the maximum number of points and, if possible, winning. Still, if you don’t lose it strengthens you,” the Coach said at a Press conference.

“It’ll be difficult game due to it being played at Ipurua, where many dead balls are played due to the contest and dimensions [of the pitch]. Strategy in this type of match is very important.

“Schedule? We’re used to training in the morning and the players are up and running at these times.

“Rotation? We’re not obliged to make excessive changes as we’re only thinking about Eibar.”
