Manchester United midfielder Juan Mata has revealed how Manchester United were revitalized thanks to their mid-week Dubai trip.
United registered a 1-0 win over Tottenham in the English Premier League thanks to Marcus Rashford’s first half strike and David De Gea’s second half heroics.
Mata who was watching on from the side lines felt, the trip brought good feelings to the squad.
Writing on his blog, Mata lavished priase on De Gea, also calling Rashford – a “wonder” kid.
It’s our sixth in a row, which as you can imagine is contributing to a positive atmosphere in the team. The time that we spent together in Dubai last week was good, we enjoyed the togetherness that these kinds of camps give you, and the sun always helps. On top of that, we worked hard to prepare for the game that awaited us in London.
We paid Wembley a visit feeling good, against a Tottenham side that is very tough to play against. They started by pressing us, but we put ourselves in front after a great move just before the half-time break. It was a fantastic pass from Paul and the perfect finish from the Wonder Kid. In the second half, as was expected, Spurs made us suffer, to be honest. But David appeared, once again.
He showed yesterday that he is an amazing goalkeeper, and the second 45 minutes emphasised that in memorable fashion. It seemed impossible that a goal would go in for them. He gave off the impression that no matter where they put the ball, it would end up with him. Incredible. Thanks to him, and the hard work from all of the team, we took three important points to keep climbing up the table. Next weekend we welcome Brighton, with everyone wanting to extend our current run in front of our own fans.Juan Mata wrote on his blog.
