“I'm thrilled to have played my 550th game and to be able to contribute to the win with a goal. I couldn't ask for any more on a personal level. As for the penalty, whenever Cristiano Ronaldo doesn't play, if it's not Gareth then it's me who takes them. It's important to cut the deficit a bit more and these recent wins are fantastic for morale. We have to keep on in this vein”.
“The team have bounced back from a tough moment, we’ve found our feet again. Things are starting to fall into place and we’re fighting for it, putting the pressure on in the fight for LaLiga. The level of football in getting better and teams have more and more firepower up front. We must fight to keep a clean sheet, really try to concede as few goals as possible”.
