Chelsea matchwinner Juan Mata was delighted with victory at Manchester United.

Mata had no doubt about how significant this result could be when the league finishes in two weeks' time.

He said: "It was a very important victory. Playing against Manchester United and Tottenham were two big games in a week for us.

"We got a win here and if we can get a win on Wednesday it will help.

"Both teams played a bit slowly. For the goal I just tried to shoot, aim for the second post and the most important thing was that it was a goal."
