"We want to win all nine La Liga matches that we have left", said Arbeloa.
James returned to action for Real Madrid following his injury lay-off, and analysed his comeback against Granada: "It's been 60 days out but my foot didn't prevent me from doing physical work, and that was noticeable. Being at the Bernabéu and everyone chanting my name is a dream come true. It's something really nice and I hope I can keep on helping and working so that the team can get positive results".

"I'm happy to have helped, and what's important is that we won. We have to carry on in this vein. It was a big scoreline, but I think it was fair. Everyone played well today and we know that Cristiano always scores goals. We're happy for him too".

"If we're all in good shape that's good news in terms of all being able to help out, no matter who plays. You have to help the team at all times".

On Barcelona
"We can't think about other teams; we can only focus on ourselves and stay focused for what's ahead, which is going to be really tough".

This result gives us a lot of confidence.

"Now we have to focus on Wednesday and on winning every game remaining, which is what we're after. It's always good to win and this result gives us a lot of confidence for what's ahead".

Arbeloa: "We did our job"
"The whole team put in a great match. It's always difficult after the international break, but everyone was able to enjoy it. We have a lot of games ahead of us, and we want to win all 9 La Liga matches that we have left. We did our job and we have to hope that Barça slip up. We're going to try to win every game and make sure Barcelona feel us behind them".

Cristiano Ronaldo
"He's very happy, it's the first time in his career that he's scored five goals. It always seems like he's already achieved everything, but then he achieves something else".

The title race
"Every match is a chance for points to be dropped and every match for Barça is going to be difficult. You can slip up when you least expect it, so our job is to carry on winning".
