Manchester United’s Juan Mata hailed his side’s performances after Louis van Gaal’s Red Devils returned to winning ways after their 2-1 home win over West Ham United on Saturday in the English Premier League.
Mata was an unused substitute, with Wayne Rooney and Robin van Persie latching up the home side’s goals at Old Trafford.
And Spanish midfielder Mata was delighted to see United secure their second victory of the season, despite not playing himself.
“As I wrote last week, the team was ready to work hard and keep going in order to overcome our tough start,” Mata wrote on his blog.
“That sacrifice was shown against West Ham and the three points make us look at the table in a different way now.”
“Once again, the support of Old Trafford was a big help. Our goal now is to become more consistent and to keep working on our football style to add more points.”
“The more we enjoy on the pitch, the more we will make you enjoy our games.”
“The team aims to keep growing throughout the entire season and we are sticking together to achieve that.”
Mata added: “We are already thinking about the match against Everton next Sunday.”
“Last season we couldn’t win, but I believe it will be different this time and we will be able to get the three points in our stadium.”
