Juan Mata reveals mood inside Manchester United dressing room ahead of Crystal Palace
Anthony Martial fired home a left-footed shot to give United a 1-0 lead at Molineux on Monday night, before Ruben Neves’ fantastic curling shot hit the bar and found the back of the net for Wolves.
Paul Pogba was brought down late in the game but his spot-kick was saved, with the fact that the Frenchman took the penalty after several misses in the last twelve months a source of frustration for some fans.
But Mata, who signed a new deal in June, insists despite the two dropped points that there is a good feeling in the camp at the moment ahead of the fixture against Palace.
“I’m very happy to be here and very happy we have started the season,” Mata told ESPN .
“I would be happier if we had six points. That’s what we felt after the Wolves game but the first game was very good against a good side (4-0 win over Chelsea). We’ve got four points, but we’re looking forward to getting three more on Saturday (against Palace).
“Every time that you start a new season there is excitement. We have a manager that everyone knows, he’s been around the club for many years and has done great things here.
“We are all very excited about what we can do. Hopefully we can have a great season and keep our fans happy and excited until the end of the season.”
