A Champions pass

Juan Mata champions

Juan assisted Rashford in a decisive goal in the Manchester derby. The 0-1 win leaves United just one point adrift the fourth place. Mata has played every single game in the Premier.

Three points that could be worth a place in the Champions League. Manchester United is just one point behind the fourth place after winning City at the Etihad (0-1). Curiously, their city rivals hold the last position that gives access to the Champions League.

Once more Juan started the game and was decisively involved in the only goal of the match. In a quick combination in midfield Juan assisted Rashford that send the ball to the back of the net. Marcus easily dribbled Demichelis to beat Hart with a quality touch. It was the 16 minute and although City had a few chances, they could not beat De Gea in the minutes left.

Mata played in the right wing from the start leaving his usual place in the centre to Lingard. Juan, replaced by Schweinsteiger in the 70 minute, completed an 80% pass accuracy. The Asturian has played the 30 games United has disputed in the Premier, more than anyone else in the team.
