“When we go to the pitch, that’s all we want to do – we want to win – and when the game finishes, if you win, you go home happy.

“If I lose a game, it’s a different frame of mind when I finish the match – I go home and I feel upset.

“You always have to know that you are going to leave everything on the pitch, every drop of sweat, to help the team win the game.”

The Spain international also mentioned the complication of scoring in English top flight and how prolific you need to be in front of goals.

“You just have to be prepared because in the Premier League you are not always going to have more than once chance to score.
