first_imgManchester United midfielder Nemanja Matic says his success at former club Chelsea demonstrates that he has nothing to prove in Sunday’s Premier League clash between the two sides.Matic joined champions Chelsea in 2014 under former manager Jose Mourinho and helped them win two league titles and a League Cup in three seasons.The Serbian was reunited with Mourinho at United in July and has been instrumental in the Manchester club’s strong start this season as they sit second in the league standings and top of their Champions League group.”I feel when I played there, I showed them my quality. We won the title twice and also two cups, so I don’t have to prove to them anything. I just have to prove something to my new club,” Matic is quoted as saying by The Guardian.The 29-year-old said he was not concerned about his reception at Stamford Bridge but is wary of losing to the champions as it would give rivals the opportunity to insert themselves into the title race.”We know we must respect them,” Matic added. “They are a good team, they’re champions and it’s going to be a hard game for us, but we also have our own qualities.”The Premier League is difficult… You lose two games and the other teams are there, so it’s important not to lose points, of course, but there’s a long way to go.”Former Chelsea playmaker Juan Mata was part of the United team that lost 4-0 to Antonio Conte’s side last season but the Spaniard believes the side’s focus is fully on the coming fixture.advertisement”There’s not revenge on my mind. (They are) totally different games, what happened last season, happened last season and now we have to think in the present,” Mata said.”It’s always a difficult game playing Chelsea away but we will try our best.”There is a lot of pressure around the game but obviously we will try to play our best football and come back to Manchester with three points.”United trail leaders Manchester City by five points and last beat fourth-placed Chelsea in an away league game in 2012.last_img

first_imgThe fans of the Almeria They did not have so much fun watching their team play, which reacted after the bad start of 2019. The rojiblancos deployed a great game in Lugo showing themselves lethal on the offensive plane and achieving a historic victory. Not surprisingly, it is the biggest win in its history at home in the twenty seasons that militates in the LaLiga (the last 18, consecutively). There is only a similar precedent -identical- in the course 18-19, when the Almeria, under the acronym of the CF and with Quique Hernández on the bench, they beat Sestao 0-4 on day 16. That December 16, 1995, Milinkovic left with a triplet in 33 minutes (24 ‘, 39’ and 57 ‘), joining Roberto Martínes party (67′). This weekend Darwin, with a double Tie and Vada they also left their stamp on the history of the Indian club, who has only won in those two games with four goals away from home. As visitors, the UDA starred in a little hand against Barcelona B and precisely also in Lugo, although the goal difference was not four goals, since Barcelona B materialized four and Lugo three. Both meetings were from the 12-13 season (days 1 and 38), a campaign in which Almeria also made four goals in Santander (3-4, 16th date). The other two times in which the rojiblancos married poker outside their stadium was on April 2, 2006 against Levante (2-4) and on April 19, 2008 at Sánchez Pizjuán (1-4). The last is the biggest win of Almeria in the First Division.Counting both home and foreign meetings, the jackpot takes that 6-0 to Xerez, with the UDA playing the permanence on the 38th day in its first course in the LaLiga under its new denomination. That May 31, 2003, Juan Rojas’ stand was a party, with the doublets of Francisco, Bilic and Ortiz. Almeria also achieved four goals difference was in the 12-13 season, with a 4-0 to Guadalajara (fifth day), and a 5-1 to Sabadell (twenty fifth). A course before, another 4-0 to Guadalajara in the penultimate meeting of the first round.The 0-4 in the Anxo Carro also serves for José María Gutiérrez finally set the goal to zero away from home, being the second time he succeeds by counting 2-0 against Numancia. In the previous seven meetings with the UD Almería, the Madrid coach had seen how his team had received a dozen goals, worrying him of the conceded goals.
