Mata insists all at Chelsea are united

Juan Mata insists that everybody at Chelsea is united in their quest for Premiership glory.

The Blues moved to within seven points of the top of the table with a 2-1 win over league leaders Manchester City and the Spaniard says that any reports of the squad and management being divided are way off.

"The team has shown in the worst moments that we are united behind the manager," Mata said.

"Now that we are in a run of results where things are more positive, everything is easier, but we have shown that we are together with the manager and the technical staff, like a family.

"We have not won anything just by beating these teams, but we have to keep fighting to win games because we are still in with a chance of a lot of trophies.

"It was a very important win against the league leaders, and it gives us a lot of confidence.

"We have won three vital games, against Newcastle, Valencia and now this one, which has broken the negative run we were in and now we can hopefully start a good sequence to keep on rising up the table."
