Juan Mata has assisted in all the seasons he’s been playing in the Premier League (he arrived on the 2011/12). No other player can presume of this stat. In two of those campaigns he stood out at Chelsea, United’s rival this Saturday.
The Premier has been the competition where the most amount of stars shine every weekend. Among them, midfielders and playmakers like Hazard, Modric, Silva, De Bruyne, Cesc, Lampard or Gerrard have been in the Premier during the last decade. With them Juan Mata has shared scenes in several moments. He also stands out for a stat that distinguishes him from all of them.
