The Weekly Mata – Happy at victory over Hull City, frustrations at injuries and dressing room delight

by Sam Peoples

Juan Mata played a vital role in Manchester United’s 3-0 win over Hull City on Saturday.

From a midfield role, Mata worked perfectly in unison with Ander Herrera to help United dominate possession and ultimately the game.

This morning in Mata’s weekly blog, the Spaniard discussed how happy he was at the convincing win, commented on United’s injury continued injury plight and revealed how the dressing room felt after the match.

“On Saturday we won the first of two consecutive games in Old Trafford in just four days. The team had a solid performance with spells of very good football. Personally, I enjoyed myself a lot on the pitch. We were better than Hull since the beginning, with several chances to score and a high percentage of ball possession that we used to play some nice football that I think our fans did like. That is the way to go! With the players we have I believe we are capable of playing football that is good and effective at the same time.

“Ángel’s injury is a pity; we hope he gets fit again soon. As for Wayne’s problems, hopefully it’s nothing too serious. In this regard, we keep being really unfortunate with so many injuries.

“After the game, in the dressing room, the feeling was that we had played a good game to be proud of, because it had showed all our efforts in the training sessions during the week. This win adds up to a good run of results. Let’s hope to consolidate that in December, a very busy month that can take us closer to our goals. For a start, we play Stoke City this Tuesday, again at home.”
