9 Sep 2017
After three wins Man United left behind two points at the bet365 Stadium (2-2). Juan stepped in on the 72'. On Tuesday, against Basilea, the Red Devils will start their path in the Champions League.
Manchester United drew against Stoke City (2-2) in the 4th game week of the Premier League. Juan Mata, a starter on the first three matches, didn't play this time from the beginning. He came out on the 72' for Marcus Rashford with 2-2 already on the score, and he proved very participative when it came to revitalising United's attack. In fact, a corner by Mata nearly ended up in a decisive goal.
Choupo-Moting, in two occasions, scored for the Locals, whereas Rashford and Lukaku scored for United. This score lets United remain on top of the league although with the same points as City (10), and are now waiting for the Champions. Against Basilea on Tuesday, Old Trafford will host United's first Champions League match. Juan will play another special tournament for him as he won it on 2011-12.
