A top class Juan qualifies Manchester United

A great goal after Martial’s pass decided the FA Cup replay against Wolverhampton Wanderers. The Asturian has scored 11 goals in 32 games in this tournament. Has participated in three of the last five goals for United.

Juan Mata once again was decisive for ManU. The Spanish international scored the goal that decided the 3rd round of the FA Cup against Wolverhampton Wanderers at Old Trafford. The final 1-0 seals United place in the next round that will be played against the winner of the Tranmere Rovers vs Watford.

With his goal, Mata continued to perform as he did against Norwich (assisted twice). He has taken part in three of the last five goals of United. Against Wolverhampton, Juan took three shots and gave two key passes. It was the player who created the most danger to Ruddy’s goal from the start (shortly after the whistle, an excellent pass to James could have been 1-0). Juan brilliantly finished in the 67th minute chipping the ball with a great class over Ruddy after Martial´s pass. It was the action that decided the game. With this goal, he adds eleven goals in 32 games of the FA Cup, a tournament that has always special to him.

At the end of the 90 minutes, Mata completed 91% of his passes and was chosen Player of the Match by the Manchester United fans. “We take the FA Cup very seriously because it is a very special competition and for me personally I really like it,” Juan told MUTV. “Hopefully we can keep going in this competition and I hope we can play at Wembley again.”

The next appointment for Solskjaer’s men will be on Sunday 19 January, in their visit to Anfield. United is precisely the only team that has been able to take points from Liverpool this Premier League (drew at the Old Trafford game).
