Juan Mata and Anthony Martial all smiles at training after Everton win

by Sam Peoples

Juan Mata and Anthony Martial certainly look happy at Manchester United’s training ground today after the 3-0 win over Everton, and so they should be.

It was one of Man United’s most complete performances of the season at a stadium where we have played very poorly over the last few years and came after a two week void created by the humiliation away at Arsenal which made it all the more impressive.

Mata himself was taken off for tactical reasons but Martial completed the full 90 minutes and heading into the midweek Champions League game against CSKA Moscow, both players are back in training today to prepare.


Winning against Everton was the perfect way to brush the Arsenal result under the carpet but with an away trip to Moscow followed by the Manchester derby at the weekend, it’s only the beginning of an intense week of football for United.

This could be considered a real season defining week because if we come away with three wins from these games, it would be a real statement of intent from Louis van Gaal‘s side that we are genuine title contenders.
