Manchester United midfielder Juan Mata has admitted that they still have hopes of winning the Premier League title.
Reflecting on victory at QPR, the Spanish international wrote in his personal blog: “We already knew how tough it is to play at Loftus Road. I’m not quite sure about its dimensions but from the pitch I’d say it’s the smallest one in the league*. But what matters is that we fought hard and were able to win.
“We made several chances throughout the entire game and finally we got three valuable points thanks to the goals from Felli and James. QPR played their cards as we expected and they were also dangerous when sending long balls to the attacking players, but David, once again, was a wall.
“Winning this weekend was even more important since all the teams in the top side of the table – except Manchester City – won their games. There’s still a long way to go; we have to keep pushing and be at a high level because our main rivals will do the same. We want to get in top form for the crucial weeks of the season.”
