Spanish midfielder Juan Mata has revealed his happiness that Manchester United ended their eight games winless streak and replaced it with ‘dynamism, courage and energy’ during their 2-1 premier league win against Swansea.
The win was United’s first since November when they beat Watford 2-1 at Vicarage Road and Mata is delighted with the way they have started the New Year.
‘I feel that we have started 2016 with energy and that our negative streak (much longer than it should be) has been left behind,’ Mata wrote in his weekly blog on Monday.
‘Many of you have asked about how we felt as the games went by and the team didn’t win. I have to say that our only thought was to work well day after day, stay focused and try to revert this situation.
‘In our last game of 2015, against Chelsea, I think everybody saw what I’m talking about. There was dynamism, courage and energy although we couldn’t win.
‘Finally, we did it on Saturday against Swansea. You could see how tough it was but I think we deserved the three points. I hope this is going to be the start of a good run of results.’
Manchester United are currently placed fifth on the premier league log with 33 points, nine points behind league leaders Arsenal.
