Big week ahead
5 Nov 2018
Back to back 2-1 wins have given us the confidence we need to face up to one of the most difficult weeks of the season. To visit both Juventus and Manchester City in the space of four days is a big challenge that the fixture list has put in front of us, and we are heading towards it with the utmost motivation.
As I said to start off, to beat Bournemouth, a team who have only lost two games in ten match days, was really positive. We were able to carry on well after the win against Everton. We had to come from behind, not for the first time, and it wasn’t easy, but to take the three points in stoppage time is a special feeling. Perhaps the best thing from the win was to know that the away fans would travel all the way home happy. You all made the long trip and helped us to enjoy a great weekend. Thank you for your support at every game away from Old Trafford.
In Spain, LaLiga is showing itself to be more competitive than ever. Barça struggled to beat Rayo; Real Madrid did the same against a Valladolid side who are having a great season, and Atlético couldn’t win against Leganés. I think it’s a great thing for LaLiga, making it even more attractive to watch.

Away from competitive action, this week we have welcomed the Rosalía women’s football academy to Common Goal. It is a pleasure to get a football school involved with our movement which helps a lot of girls to develop their passions through education and teaching important values. Women’s football is growing rapidly, which is amazing, and we have to keep supporting it to help it get even bigger.
I’ll leave it there for today. I hope you all have a great week.
PS: Congratulations to Jorge Martín for his world title. 2/3 isn’t bad for Spain this season in motorcycle racing 😉
