Victory at Espanyol. "I'm very happy with the work the players put in, after all of the effort they made the other day with a man less. Their opener could have debilitated us, but it did exactly the opposite. We are continuing to persevere and go in search of victory. Our second half was very complete. We were demanding and that was evident in our game".

LaLiga. "We have to keep insisting and believing. We are giving everything we've got. We are intense and persistent, and we're still battling".

Motivation. "It's the best way for us to continue aspiring to win the league. A win like today's generates enthusiasm".

Champions League. "We've got four days and I'm sure we'll go into it in good shape".

Torres. "One of his team mates will play on Wednesday, and will do so with the determination and drive that such a game requires. Griezmann is on a upward curve, he's fantastic and we love him a lot".

Real Sociedad-Barcelona. "I can't judge, only hope".

Torres. "All of the good things that happen to Torres are entirely down to his own merit. He is very persistent in his work".
