It has been reported that Manchester United midfielder Juan Mata says they’re right in the title mix.
The Spanish international was delighted with victory at Watford on Saturday.
The midfielder wrote in his personal blog: “I wouldn’t say it was a nice football game, but I think that in the first half, and especially in the first few minutes, we were the better team and, as a consequence, we got a good goal from Memphis. In the second half, we had some chances but it’s true that they did good pressing and we couldn’t play the ball and control the game.
“They converted a late penalty but we showed great courage to score again before the final whistle and, following other results, we climbed to second position in the table. I’d like to highlight that we kept the team spirit until the end and I hope we do it throughout the whole season. A tough win like this one, when you don’t play very good, means more than three points.
“Our next rival in the Premier League, as I said before, is Leicester. Claudio Ranieri’s team is having a remarkable season and the proof is that they are top of the league.”
