Manchester United, with Juan Mata as a starter, beat Arsenal 3-2 at Old Trafford. Juan, the only player who has played all Premier matches, collaborated in the third goal.
Juan Mata’s Manchester United completed an outstanding week after a win against Arsenal at Old Trafford (3-2). After qualifying for the next round of the FA Cup and Europa League, the Red Devils impose themselves to the Gunners in an thrilling game.
Juan started as United’s playmaker, surrounded by the same players that played against Midtjylland on Thursday. Schnederlin and Ander Herrera as centre-halfs, Lingard and Depay on the wings and the promising Rashford (18 years old) as centre-forward. The Asturian has played all 27 Premier matches, 24 of them as a starter. Against Arsenal, Juan had the most effective pass of them all (87%) and started the game-play of the 3-1: a good pass to Rashford (author of the first two goals) who then gave the ball to Ander Herrera who scored.
This triumph leaves United at only 4 points of the fourth position (although with a match ahead of Manchester City). On Wednesday, Man United will host Watford at Old Trafford.
