Juan Mata’s United won at Bournemouth (1-3) on the first game-week of the Premier League. Juan was a starter and scored the 0-1. He has participated in the last 52 ManU Premier matches.
Juan Mata couldn’t start this 2016-17 season in a better way. United’s number 8 scored the first goal just minutes before half time. On the second half Rooney and Ibrahimovic sentenced the match against Bournemouth (1-3). On the 75′ Juan Mata left the pitch applauded by Man United’s fans and Mkhitaryan came in. Juan ended the match with 92% of passing accuracy. His mobility -starting from the right-, his ability to control the rythm of the match and his movements were crucial for the visitors.

Juan Mata, being a starter, increased a spectacular statistic. He has played the last 52 games in the Premier with United. Since February 2015 he hasn’t missed a match with the Red Devils. This is something unique in Man United’s squad. This stat reflects the importance of Juan Mata in a team that starts the competition with the conviction of fighting for the title.

Juan’s goal evidenced the fact that he is quite confident. He fought for a ball and he benefited from a bounce to score the first goal. He had a bit of luck but he deserved it. After conquering the Community Shield last Sunday, Man United started the Premier League with authority. His rivals are warned.
