United and City will test their strength this Saturday in a match that has inspired great expectations (12.30 local time). Juan Mata, a starter in the last three Premier matches, is in great form. On his last games against City he has scored a goal and an assist.
This Saturday from 12.30 (local time) English football fans and plenty of fans around the world will meet to watch one of the best football games available. Juan Mata’s Manchester United will host Manchester City at Old Trafford. This is a neighbour’s fight on the Peak of the Premier League. Both teams, along with Chelsea, are the only ones that have won their three games so far in the Premier.
The Derby comes soon but that doesn’t mean less expectation. Juan, after several days with the Spanish National Team, has returned to Manchester willing to give continuity to this promising beginning of the season. He has been on the starting line up on the first three matches of the Premier and he has also participated on the Community Shield match against Leicester, which he won. United have reinforced themselves with extraordinary players and has swapped coaches, but the Asturian remains a key for the team.
Mata is helping a lot while attacking but he is also defending. On the last three games against Man City, United has won twice and drew one. On the two wins, Juan was protagonist. He scored the third goal on the 4-2 of April 2015 and assisted Rashford on the 0-1 last season. Click To Tweet
At Old Trafford Juan Mata will have to face plenty of players he knows quite well as he said on his post last week. David de Gea and him have met Silva and Nolito these past days with Spain. The Spaniards will have plenty to say in this amazing match.
