Next Match: away to Almeria, December 15
David Lopez has declared his growing in confidence and feeling more and more important to Espanyol, but insists he will continue to train hard and perform at his best because he knows his place in the team is not guaranteed. The 24-year-old midfielder has featured in all of his team's games this season bar two, one of which he was suspended for (against Sevilla). He told reporters: "I'm in very good form at the moment and enjoying playing a lot of games. I keep feeling better and better, I'm growing in confidence and getting more and more comfortable in the team. No-one in the team is untouchable, as we have seen. You can go from playing an entire match to not even making the squad. Right now things are going well for me but I have to keep going in the same direction."
