Juan Mata insists Man United back to best for Everton win

Juan Mata defended Manchester United’s performance for victory over Everton.

The Spaniard believes United are getting back to their best after consecutive wins against City and Everton. 

He said: “We wanted to win but in our way of playing, which is playing the ball and trying to create chances and I think we did that very good.”

“After scoring the first goal it was easier because they opened up. It was a good and very important game.”

“There were times they played really good football. They have quality players in midfield and a striker who is on fire this season, and we knew it would be tough. But in the second half we played like we should.”

“Arsenal won, Manchester City won, so we had to win and we did.”

“Now we have a whole week to focus on the next game, which will be very difficult, but we will try to win again.”
