Man Utd fans react to Mata display against Man City on social media

Posted by

Manchester United recorded a 1-0 win over rivals Manchester City in the EFL Cup on Wednesday night thanks to a goal from Juan Mata who managed to find the back of the net in his 100th start for the Red Devils.

Mata scored his first goal in domestic competition in 256 minutes of playing time in the process.

The Red Devils have now won 13 points from a maximum 15 when Mata has started this season – assuming the win today would have counted for three points. United have only managed to pick up one points from a maximum 12 without him.

The victory took United through to the next stage of the cup and it was also City’s six consecutive game without a victory.

We took a look at how fans reacted to his display on social media.

His stats made impressive reading.

It does make you wonder why Mata is does not have a guaranteed first-team place.

Mata to the rescue!

The Tom Hanks of football!

Mourinho will definitely be breathing a sigh of relief following the win over City.

More praise!
