United level Manchester City on points and continues its good run.
A late free-kick from Mata gave United the victory (1-0) against Watford. Old Trafford presenced an equal match that was not decided until the 83 minute when Mata´s stunning free-kick, after Martial was fouled by Britos, went passed Gomes who could do little to try to save the ball.
This decisive action crowns Mata´s excellent form. The Spaniard has been impressive for the few last games, performing at a high level, and generating offensive play as the playmaker. Against Watford, he reached 92% pass accuracy, shot four times on goal and created three chances. He was chosen by fans as the Man of the Match in the club’s Twitter account. Everything in the day Mata wore United captain´s armband for the first time.
With this victory, the Red Devils level on points with four place Manchester City although the citizens have a game in hand. After overcoming difficult times, the team is gaining confidence victory after victory, thanks to players like Juan Mata who has scored eight goals and eight assists this season.
