Manchester United beat Everton 1-0. The Asturian played the complete match and got stronger throughout the minutes. The Red Devils has 53 points and their city rivals, fourth in the table, 54.
A goal from Martial in the minute 54 (Juan participated with a magical first-touch) gave United the victory against Everton at Old Trafford 1-0. Mata was in the line-up in a special day (there was a tribute to Sir Bobby Charlton before the start) and played the complete game, so he continues with his record: is the only United player who has disputed every single game in the Premier, 31 to date.

Juan played on the right from the beginning and he did not have too much prominence in the first half. The situation changed after the break. He moved to the central position in attack and participated much more. He even moved through the left side, place from which he drew a cross that was about to become the second goal.
His outstanding performance (87% efficiency in the pass, two chances created) was recognized in the ManU official account on Twitter. In addition, he received the award for best player of the match. The 1-0 puts United in fifth position with 53 points. Only a point away from City (fourth place). The Champions League hopes still alive.
