Juan Mata arriving at Leicester.

Mata on a difficult but exciting few weeks ahead

Hi everyone. I'm writing today after taking a look at the calendar. I'm not one to think about the long term, but the weeks that lie ahead will be exciting, as well as difficult.

We have started the month well with a win against Leicester City. The team keeps showing that they can dig deep and compete.

We saw it on Tuesday when we took a point after going 2-0 behind [against Burnley], as well as at the weekend when our opponent was looking for an equaliser.

It wasn’t the most eye-catching of games, but we continue on our good run of form which has allowed us to climb up the table and we want more.

We want to keep winning to get into the top four. We know that it will be difficult, because our opponents are also playing at a top level, but we will give everything until the very end to get there.

What can you say about our goal against Leicester… a spectacular pass from Paul [Pogba] and a great finish from Marcus [Rashford]. His touch was worth half a goal on its own. The wonderkid’s form keeps on going.

Before I sign off, I want to wish the best of luck to my friend Fellaini. We spent many seasons together and he is a great guy. I wish you the best, Marouane.

I hope you have a great week and thank you for your support.
