United, with Juan Mata in the line-up, beat Sunderland (3-1). The Asturian nearly score and was very successful in the pass. It is the fourth consecutive win by the ManU in the Premier.
Juan Mata and Manchester United smiled on Boxing Day and offered a great Christmas gift to their fans. ManU, with the Spaniard as a starter, beat Sunderland at Old Trafford (3-1, goals from Blind, Ibra and Mkhitaryan) and won his fourth consecutive win in the Premier League. A streak in which the Red Devils has scored eight goals and only conceded two.
The United improves properly thanks, among other factors, to the performance of their offensive players. One of them is Juan, whose game with and without the ball offers continuous solutions to his teammates. Placed on the right, his mobility and support in attack is basic to activate the circulation of the ball. He finished the game with a 96% pass accuracy. Click To Tweet
Against Sunderland, a great save from Pickford saved Mata’s goal from a free-kick. The visiting goalkeeper also denied Ibrahimovic after an excellent pass from Juan. Middlesbrough (31 December) will be United’s next Premier League rival.
