Cape Town - Spanish midfielder Juan Mata was happy to see his side take all three points following a closely fought match with Everton on Sunday.

The Manchester United play maker took to his blog to give his post match thoughts:

"What an important win this weekend against Everton!

And for many reasons: it is one more consecutive victory in Old Trafford; it means three points to climb to the top four of the table; winning is the best possible way to face an international break; and many other things.

It was a key game but we know there is still a long way ahead. Because we won the match but once again we suffered until the last minute, and perhaps we should have controlled the game better.

We took the lead thanks to Ángel and then David started his amazing performance. First he saved Baines’ penalty. In the second half they tied the game and later on Radamel scored (I am very happy for you, the first one of many more goals, I’m sure).

And then David did several extraordinary saves to keep the three points at home. What a superb performance! It seems his new haircut brought him luck…!

As the manager said we know we have to improve, but little by little we are climbing the table and I’m sure we will keep doing that with your support, always fantastic in Old Trafford."
