Marc Roca: We have to keep on going

Midfielder looks ahead to Arsenal test.

Leeds United midfielder Marc Roca is looking forward to returning to action this weekend, as his side travel to North London and face Arsenal.

A tough test against the top-of-the-table Gunners awaits for the Whites, following a two week break for the recent international matches.

Roca was asked how he felt going into the match, saying: “I think Arsenal is playing really good. 

“I think they play really nice football, they play with control in every game, but I think we will have our chances. 

“At Elland Road we did a good performance, we deserved more, we missed a penalty and we had a lot of chances to get at least one point. We deserved a lot more. 

“But, we are ready, we are with confidence. Out of the last 12 points, we won two, drew one, we only lost against Chelsea in the league since Javi Gracia came here.  

“We are in a good moment and we have to keep on going. We will go to the Emirates and we want the three points. 

“All our matches are going to be like this, we focus there, we know we are a good team, we showed it before against the top teams.”

Prior to the break, Roca played a key part in the win away at Wolves, playing the full match at Molineux as his side ran out 4-2 winners away from home. 

“It was really important match for us,” the midfielder explained, on the Wolves win. 

“We wanted the three points and I think now we are in a good shape, in a good moment for us and it was very important for us to win this game. 

“I think we did a good performance, it was not easy to play there against Wolves away but I think the team is getting stronger and more confident.  

“It was very important, the three points were massive.”
