Setien wants more aggressiveness

Las Palmas coach Quique Setien wants his side to be 'more aggressive and more attentive' as they host Athletic Bilbao on Monday night.

Los Amarillos crashed to a 2-0 defeat at Real Betis last time out and the 58-year-old believes his side will need to adapt and play a different style of play if they are to have any success against the Basque side.

"It is true we have to be more aggressive and more attentive, we need to make some positional changes to combat Athletic," explained Setien.

"I do not want to obsess the team with trying to stop the opponent and I believe we still need to carry our own style but there are definitely aspects we need to focus and improve on.

"It will be a game between sides with two different styles and aerially they will be a big threat, while maybe we're better with the ball on the ground.

"They have great players and I expect a beautiful game."
