Real Madrid midfielder Sami Khedira believes the Spanish champions are back on the right track after a disappointing first half to the season.

Madrid lost four times in La Liga before Christmas - twice as many defeats as they suffered in the whole of last season - as they fell 18 points behind leaders Barcelona.

However, since the new year Jose Mourinho's men have won four of their five league and cup matches, drawing the other.

On Sunday they recorded a stunning 5-0 win over Valencia at the Mestalla to cut the gap to Barca back to 15 points following the Catalan club's defeat to Real Sociedad the previous day.

Germany international Khedira told reporters today: "We had a difficult situation, we weren't doing well, and we talked about it together and saw it was going badly.

"We've worked hard these past weeks and I think we're moving in the right direction. We're playing well, really tight, and I think it's going to give us future results."

Madrid face Valencia again tomorrow night in the second leg of their Copa del Rey quarter-final at the Mestalla, where the capital club defend a 2-0 lead from the first leg.

If Madrid get through then they could meet arch-rivals Barca in the semi-finals, but Khedira insists his side are not looking that far ahead.

"We have to focus on tomorrow's match and it doesn't matter if we'll play against Barcelona or Malaga," he said.

"We're in a good place and I think we can win and move on. We'll talk about it when we have our spot in the next round."

h Daniel. I could spend hours on this subject putting the world to rights. You can even take a step back and ask why football fans (and society in general) have this need to know that something will happen before it actually does. There are times this important, when it comes to things like war, food production and natural disasters. A man you've never met changing his job? Not so much.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.
