Victory escapes from United in Mata’s great day
23 Dec 2017
Juan, who got to 300 matches in England, scored United's two goals against Leicester (2-2). He has scored 72 goals in those 300 matches. Only Sebastian Larsson and Cristiano Ronaldo have scored more free kick shots in Premier's history.
A goal from Maguire in the last minute of stoppage time avoided United's triumph against Leicester (2-2). A win in which Mata could've been responsible. The Spanish international player made a spectacular performance scoring two goals. The first of them, a subtle shot that was very well placed and meant the 1-1 on the 40'. The second on the 60, from a free kick, got the 1-2. The score until Maguire made his goal. Vardy on the 27 scored the first goal for Leicester.
