It was a special game

As you can imagine, this has been a very intense day for me. A Sunday full of emotions because of the big game against Chelsea. Facing them for the first time was special and the match, very even in my opinion, was tense until the last minute. I think we did a good first half, but we weren’t able to take our chances.

An important game to close the week

I want to tell you how is my last day before playing a game. When we play away from home, and this is the case now, we use to meet up on the eve of the game at Carrington’s training ground. We have our last training session and then we have lunch together -today I shared a table with David and Ander as we followed the scores in European football.

A break at home

Today I’m writing to you from Asturias, shortly before boarding a plane back to Manchester. After a very good week of training I got the weekend off and I thought a good idea to visit my family and friends. I was right. Coming home is always great.

We keep climbing the table

What an important win this weekend against Everton! And for many reasons: it is one more consecutive victory in Old Trafford; it means three points to climb to the top four of the table; winning is the best possible way to face an international break; and many other things. It was a key game but we know there is still a long way ahead.

Let’s keep adding points

As I wrote last week, the team was ready to work hard and keep going in order to overcome our tough start. That sacrifice was shown against West Ham and the three points make us look at the table in a different way now. Once again, the support of Old Trafford was a big help.

We have to stand up and keep going

Today it took me a long time to sit down in front of the computer in order not to miss my weekly meeting with you. I have waited a few hours before facing the white screen to try to express how I feel after the game in Leicester. After a whole week waiting for the match I could not imagine a Sunday like this.
