Mata: We have renewed hope after Chelsea win

Hi everyone. Welcome back again. It’s the start of a new Premier League season and, as always, at this stage of the campaign, we have hope renewed.

After agreeing to a new contract with the club (many thanks for all of your kind messages, being a part of this club is something really special and unique for any footballer’s career, and I didn’t want to stop feeling that) and a very positive pre-season in every sense of the word, yesterday we started the league off on the right foot.

It’s true that the final scoreline was probably a little flattering for what happened out on the pitch itself, but the general feeling is that we had a great second half and scored our goals at key moments.

It’s exactly a year since our superb opening-day victory over Chelsea, with debuts for Maguire, Wan-Bissaka and James...

Chelsea started well, dominating and having some chances, but in the end we took the three points, kept a clean sheet and there were a lot of positives.

For example, the debuts for Harry, Aaron and Daniel (who scored as well).

They have adapted very quickly to the rest of the team and I am sure they are going to offer us a lot. It was the perfect way to start and the atmosphere at Old Trafford was fantastic. Hopefully we’ll enjoy a lot of afternoons like this one over the coming months.

I hope that you all have a great week.
