Manchester United fans impressed with Juan Mata’s performance against Sunderland

by Ben Topliss

Manchester United forward Juan Mata put in an excellent display against Sunderland on Saturday but he could not prevent his side losing 2-1 at the Stadium of Light.

Mata, operating in the No.10 position, was a creative spark for Man United against the Black Cats.

The Spaniard had a hand in United’s equaliser as his shot was spilled by Sunderland’s Vito Mannone before Anthony Martial chipped home. It was a disappointing afternoon for United as Sunderland scored late on but supporters were pleased with what they saw from Mata:

While Mata did well against Sunderland, his job is to win games for United and he failed to do that at the Stadium of Light.

United have been left with an uphill task to finish in the top four of the Premier League and missing out is now a real possibility.

It remains to be seen what the club will do with Louis van Gaal. You get the sense that change needs to happen and now.
