Real Madrid midfielder Guti admits he's in some of the best form of his career.

Guti turns 31 today and ahead of tonight's clash with Valencia said: "I am in a excellent period, I'm enjoying playing soccer more than ever, with the same dreams I had on the first day when I arrived as a child at the Sport City.

"To beat Valencia and obtain three points - so we can continue to be leaders would be the best birthday present."
