Mata, protagonist in United win

A goal from Juan eased the thrashing win at Old Trafford against Feyenoord (4-0). The Spaniard scored for the second consecutive game for the first time since September 2015.

Juan continues at an excellent level, and Feyenoord could note him at Old Trafford. Mata scored for the second consecutive game. This time the victory did not escape, and United is approaching the next round of the Europa League with a thrashing result (4-0). In the 69 minute, the Asturian finished a nice collective action that started with Carrick recovering a ball, and in which Ibrahimovic and Rooney also took part. It was the 2-0 that led the local triumph. Right after, Mourinho replaced him in the middle of a great ovation.

Minutes before the goal, Juan was close to score a spectacular goal, but his attempt of vaseline ended with a great save by Brad Jones. He finished his performance with an 88% of pass accuracy and two occasions generated, among other positive numbers. Since September 2015, Mata did not score in two consecutive games. Rooney, Ibrahimovic and Lingard completed the result.

With this result, United are placed second in Group A, just one point behind Fenerbahce. The Red Devils, with Juan in a starring role, improve game by game.
