Juan Mata has spoken about how it feels to score a goal at Old Trafford, following his winner against Crystal Palace at the weekend.

Today, following our important win on Saturday, it seems a bit easier to be here writing these lines about what has happened during the week.

The feeling of scoring a goal in Old Trafford is nearly impossible to describe, but I can tell you that is very special… It’s like an explosion of joy shared with everybody in the stadium, the players and the crowd. Even more if your goal secures the three points!

Winning this weekend was very important. We came from a few weeks without victories and these three points take us near the teams at the top, and encourage us to keep working hard and improving our game. Obviously, we know there is still a lot to do in order to get where we want to, but it’s easier when you win.

We are already thinking about the next game, and it’s a big one, in London against Arsenal. I hope we win again and show consistency in our results.

I take this opportunity to send a big hug to all of you and, as always, to thank you for your tireless support at all times.
