Barcelona coach Xavi insists they deserved their 2-1 win against Elche.
Goals from Ferran Torres and Memphis Depay helped them come from behind to win 2-1 on Sunday.
“I think we deserved the win,” Xavi said. “We created a lot of chances but we didn’t take them, we were not effective. But the team played well against an aggressive Elche side that was well-positioned defensively.
“In the second half, the team stepped forward, we created more chances than in the first half. It was a really important win, a team win, a vital win.
“I was angry at halftime because we didn’t deserve to be behind after what we had created. (Elche goalkeeper) Edgar was brilliant. I was annoyed, angry.
“But I was hopeful that if we attacked better, we would win. That’s what I told the players. I made a positional change (Ferran on) and it worked well for us.
“The sensations are very good. That’s four wins in a row. It’s a sign that we’re working well and that the players believe in what we are saying. The dynamic is good.”
