Hi everyone. To make the most of the international break last Saturday I was in Asturias, my home region.

It’s always good to go home. I was able to see my family and friends and I also had the chance to receive an award on behalf of Common Goal.

It was a truly wonderful day and receiving the prize that carries the name of Enrique Castro ‘Quini’ is always special and makes sure that the legacy of ‘Brujo’ lives on. A legend, regardless of what team you support, and we keep on learning from him.

Now it is time to get back in Manchester and focus once again on the Premier League.

We are all looking forward to training together on Thursday to prepare for Saturday’s game against Leicester.

Over the last few days we have seen how the English national team, with various of my team-mates involved, have continued to move positively towards qualification, as have Spain.

Another player who continues to show his spectacular form is Daniel James, who scored in a friendly against Belarus after picking up a few goals at the start of the campaign.

Hopefully on Saturday he will continue that run.
