A necessary win

Juan Mata on the starting eleven in United’s successful win against Swansea (1-3). He has been a starter in seven out of eleven Premier game-weeks, with a balance of five wins and two draws.

Manchester United won again in the Premier League. After the weird draw against Burnley, Juan Mata and his teammates reacted with forcefulness. They beat Swansea (1-3) thanks to a very good first half. Juan remains being a guarantee for United in the Premier League. In the seven game-weeks as a starter, his team has achieved five wins and two draws (against Stoke and Burnley ), two matches that in normal circumstances should have ended differently.

Against Swansea, in a match that started with a minute of silence in honour of all the soldiers that have lost their lives, Juan performed quite well highlighting his 93% of passing accuracy. He was very near scoring on the 77′ but his shot when out after a pass from Rooney. Last season he was able to score at the Liberty Stadium. This time he couldn’t make it, although there is a difference regarding that match, this time United took the 3 points back home.

This win means United can breathe before another International break. Juan, listed with Spain, will be one of the players that’ll have to leave Manchester for a few days.
