Juan Mata points something out to a team-mate during the Everton match

'We feel Leicester's pain'

Monday 29 October 2018 10:27

Hi everyone... I am writing to you today with the win against Everton still fresh in my mind.

Three hard-earned points, which I think were well deserved against a good team that pushed us until the end. It is a victory that comes at a good time and gives us a confidence boost heading into some important fixtures that lie ahead in November.

The game was competitive and both teams had their chances, but we felt that we had spells where we were on top and had chances. I enjoyed being out there on the pitch and the most important thing was that we left feeling positive.

Now we can focus on what is to come. We will play five games next month, with the next three all away from home. We will keep the great support we’ve been receiving in mind as we prepare for three tough games on the road, starting with Saturday against Bournemouth. Afterwards, there will be time to think about Juventus and Manchester City.

I don’t want to overlook the tragic events that occurred in Leicester. I’d like to send my care and support to the families of the victims, with Leicester City’s owner among them. It is a massive blow for everyone who is a part of the Premier League. I send my best wishes to everyone at the club, we feel your pain and we are with you.

Sadly, I would like to also send my condolences to the family and friends of Paco Rius, the president of the Valencia supporters’ group that bears my name. I received news that he has passed away, which was truly painful to hear.

Hugs, Juan.
