Juan Mata produced a phenomenal performance in Manchester United’s 2-0 victory over Hull City on Tuesday night.
The Spaniard has been a vital player at Old Trafford and showcased his importance to the squad once again as he found the opening goal of the game against Mike Phelan’s men.
He was one of our best performers before Henrikh Mkhitaryan returned to the first-team, and even with the Armenian’s fine form, has been able to prove his talent as he treated supporters to a passing masterclass against Hull.
Here’s a look at his wonderful stats from the clash.

Mata is an indispensable member of the squad and always manages to find a moment of magic even when the team aren’t performing to the best of their abilities.
Mourinho took him off in the 70th minute and it seems the Portuguese boss is looking to preserve Mata as United host Liverpool at Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon.
He always manages to get the ball forward into dangerous positions and with the Spaniard on the pitch, United have a serious attacking threat to their play, and I can’t wait to see him in action against Jurgen Klopp’s men.
