Juan closed the game against Leicester

A beautiful goal by Mata closed an important victory against the defending champion (0-3). The Asturian, very proactive, finished with a 92% pass accuracy. United have a run of fifteen Premier League games unbeaten (the best streak in the five major European leagues).

Juan Mata scored again as United returned to winning ways. After three consecutive draws in the Premier League, the Red Devils won Leicester (0-3) and put some pressure on the top positions of the competition. After this matchday, only two points separate United from the places that give access to the Champions League.

Juan´s goal, who started the game, put the icing on the cake to a convincing performance by ManU. At the start of the second half, the Asturian finished an excellent combination with Mkhitaryan. It was the 49 minute and United killed the game. In the first half, Mkhitaryan and Ibrahimovic made the difference against the current champion of the Premier.

Mata was the visiting midfielder with more efficiency in the pass (92%) and was close to score a double, but Schmeichel saved the one on one. In response to his performance, United’s Twitter account placed him among the three candidates nominated for the best player of the match.

With that goal to Leicester, Juan reaches 34 goals with the ManU shirt. It’s one more goal than he scored while playing for Chelsea. “We’re really happy today because we took our chances”, said the Spaniard at the end of the game. United has a run of 15 games unbeaten in the Premier League. Right now, no other team in the five major European leagues can say the same.
