Juan Mata has rallied his Manchester United team-mates to keep up their good form after going top of the Premier League table.
“I said to the security guy: “You are now a security guy of a club that [is] top of the league” and that makes a huge difference”.
Wayne Rooney says that “hopefully everyone will concentrate on me playing my football now” after proving everybody wrong with his knee against the Premier League’s bottom club Sunderland.
Defender Paddy McNair also took part after he recovered from the injury that sidelined him for the last two games.
Manchester United have replaced Manchester City as English Premier League football leaders after the cross-town rivals recorded contrasting results in this morning’s matches. We play away at Arsenal next week and they are one of the most hard teams to beat, but we won there last season so it is possible. “I must praise my players for the win, we scored attractive goals”.
Rooney had another United newcomer, Anthony Martial, to thank for his goal, just after the re-start.
United moved top for the first time since the opening day of the 2013-14 season and for the first time under Louis van Gaal. Rooney and Memphis put the game beyond Sunderland with goals within one minute either side of the first-half. “It’s been a long time since you don’t experience a situation like this and we hope to keep giving you a good vibe”.
“I could rotate again, we are top of the league, very happy“.
Wolfsburg was thrashed 5-1 by Bayern Munich last week as Robert Lewandowski netted five goals in nine minutes, but Van Gaal has warned Dieter Hecking’s men should not be underestimated.
City lost for the second week running, this time at White Hart Lane where Harry Kane opened his account for the season with Spurs’ third goal.
