Juan Mata insists Manchester United must not dwell on defeat at Swansea City.
The Spanish international midfielder wrote in his personal blog: “I honestly think we were close to bringing home the three points, especially because the feelings on the pitch at the start of the second half were good.
“We played almost all the time in Swansea’s half of the pitch, but we weren’t able to take any chances and we all know that football can be capricious. We were ahead after a great goal from Ander [Herrera] in the first half, but were defeated later on with a lucky goal from [Bafetimbi] Gomis after [Jonjo] Shelvey’s shot.
“Sometimes you win games that you don’t deserve to win and other times, and I think this is the case, you just don’t get what you deserve… that’s football!”
