Juan Mata has returned to Manchester ahead of the Premier League clash against Watford this weekend.
Mata featured in Spain’s friendly against England during the international break but their match against Belgium was called off due to security fears following the deadly attacks in Paris.
The midfielder will now turn his attention to the fixture against Watford, with Man United sitting in fourth in the Premier League, two points behind Manchester City at the summit.
Mata is relishing the return to Premier League action and so are the fans after what has been a long and laborious international break.

Mata will be an important figure for United as they look to secure three points at Vicarage Road in what is likely to be a tough game on the road.
Watford will be no pushovers. They have a solid defensive record this season and United’s struggles offensively have been well documented. Louis van Gaal’s side will need to be on top form and the Dutchman will undoubtedly warn his players against complacency.
