The Arsenal legend described Mata’s sublime finish as one that requires no speech, instead it’s that special moment in football when excellence can simply be applauded: “There is nothing to say about it, sometimes you just need to have a look at it and applaud,” as quoted by Sky Sports.
“It is just ridiculous what he did, especially here at Anfield and the magnitude of the game for both teams today.
The playmaker has endured a challenging time at Old Trafford, often left on the periphery of the first-team since joining from Chelsea in January 2014, but his finish on Sunday reminded us all of his remarkable ability.
He continued: “People have had a go at him, and I don’t think has played the way he can, and with the quality that he has, but what a day for him.”
