Next to Juan, his teammates Ashley Young and Mason Greenwood are also in the Team of the Week. After the match, Mata praised young Greenwood, who scored two goals: “Every time he plays he scores. In training and in games, he might not touch the ball a lot but when he’s in the box, he’s a proper finisher. He’s a killer in the box.”
