Mata was very near scoring a goal on the 57′, with an acrobatic shot thanks to Pogba’s pass that went out by little. It would have been a marvelous goal. Minutes before, a great pass from Mata to Lukaku ended up being a good chance for Alexis. The score didn’t move again.
57′ – Almost a superb third goal for #MUFC as @PaulPogba clips a delightful ball into the area for @JuanMata8, but the midfielder’s acrobatic attempt goes just over. #MUNSWA
