Antolin Alcaraz: Defender admits survival is Latics' priority

Antolin Alcaraz: Defender admits survival is Latics' priority

The Latics, currently in the bottom three and battling against the drop, face Millwall at Wembley on April 13, but Alcaraz insists Saturday's trip to Norwich is the priority.

"We have Wembley to look forward to but for me the most important game is always the next one and that is Norwich City," he said.

"We will worry about the FA Cup when it comes around next month.

"For now we must concentrate on the league because there are some important games coming up.

"We have shown in the last few games that we can win games in this league and we must keep that up if we are to move away from the bottom of the table."

The Latics defender only returned to Roberto Martinez's side recently after a six-month spell on the sidelines with a groin injury.

He is now determined to make up for lost time and added: "My season only really started two weeks ago.

"Everything before that I have forgotten about because it was not so good.

"Fortunately there is still time for me to make a difference - and I hope that is the case."

o be fair, one of the reasons its so difficult for certain clubs to get close to Real Madrid or Barcelona is once they have a player who is good enough to compete against the likes of Real Madrid or Barcelona, they f*ck off, usually to either Real Madrid or Barcelona.

nd we always will love Ozil. I don't really mind if no other team can see just how brilliant he is, or if people think he is rubbish, because we know he is far from it. He is a fantastic player, and if people cannot see that it can only be a good thing, in that he will be at Arsenal for years to come, pulling the strings from behind a glass veil.

like the list and Ozil in particular does seem under appreciated when you look at his stats (an odd thing considering his fee or maybe because of it). Palace have a few and I've always thought Dwight Gayle at Palace was under rated, certainly when you look at his goals per game ratio. You can probably also add Ryan Bertrand at Saints who should be in the England team in my view.
