Mata played 85 minutes in United victory at Old Trafford (2-1). It’s the fifth consecutive win for the Spaniard against the Liverpool side. Besides, Juan was the player with more pass accuracy, 97%.
Manchester United, with Juan Mata in the starting XI for the third time in a row, beat Everton 2-1 at Old Trafford. It’s the fifth consecutive win for the Asturian player over the Liverpool side. The goals from Pogba (27 min) and Martial (49 min) eased the victory for the local team. Sigurdsson’s goal from the penalty spot on the 77 minute added some spice until the end, but the three points stayed in Manchester.
Mata was replaced by Ander Herrera in the 85 minute and left the pitch with a 97% pass accuracy. There was no other player better than him in this statistic. He gave two key passes that nearly ended in the rival’s goal and put seven balls into the box. Besides, Mata nearly scores from a header, after a cross from Martial, that saved Pickford.
The Spanish international proved again that his presence is essential on the pitch to organise United attack. The Red Devils will play again next Saturday in their visit to Bournemouth, a team that could perfectly be the surprise of the season due to their high performance.
