ManU sealed its place in the fifth round of the FA Cup, a tournament where the Spanish Player has scored 7 goals and 9 assists in 17 games.
A goal from Juan Mata closed United victory against Derby County (1-3). The Spaniard scored just at the right moment, when the local team was near the equaliser. The result qualifies Van Gaal team for the fifth round of the FA Cup, a competition that the Asturian likes It very much. In 17 games has scored 7 goals and assisted 9 times.
Juan returned to the line up and played behind Rooney with Lingard and Martial on each side. After the 0-1 (a stunning goal from United captain by the way) Mata linked up with Wayne and Anthony beautifully but this time the ocassion went out. In the first half, though, did not participate as much as in the second.
After the break, Juan played his best minutes. In the 58 minute, with the score 1-1, nearly scored the second goal after Mata headed a cross from Lingard that went out by inches. Minutes later, in the 65 minute, with great vision Mata switched the ball to the right where Lingard, again, crossed the ball and this time Blind netted the ball for the Red Devils. United number 8 put the icing on the cake in the 83, a shot with the left that closed the game. It was his last action before being replaced by Ander Herrera.
“We came here to play football much quicker than in our last games. Scoring three goals means it was a very good performance. The away supporters are incredible. We’re really proud they can go back to Manchester happy”, said Juan after the match.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][vc_video link=”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mLRbc_OPDiE”][/vc_column][/vc_row]
