Manchester United drew at Old Trafford against Burnley (2-2) in the traditional Boxing Day of the Premier League. The match was very complicated in the first time. Juan started the game once more and played the 90 minutes, confirming his importance in the Red Devils system. Barnes and Defour put a surprising 0-2 on the score before the break. Lingard, with a double (the second was in the 91st minute), managed to equalise the score.
Mata was very active, touched many of balls with a high accuracy in the pass (85%), produced two key passes, made five crosses and shot twice on goal. Despite the 2-2, United remains second in the Premier, although, after two consecutive draws, needs to return to the winning path. This Saturday, against Southampton, will have the opportunity.
