Manchester United fans were certainly not pleased with Juan Mata‘s performance in the 1-0 loss to West Brom in the Premier League.

The Spaniard was handed a start by Jose Mourinho in order to break down the opposition’s deep defence but he failed to deliver.

Mata wasn’t the only one at fault for the team’s overall performance but it certainly wasn’t one of his better days as he struggled to create anything of note.

The former Chelsea man has seen his future at the club being brought up and his display against the Baggies will hardly do him any favours.

Juan has often been the difference for United when it comes to playing against deep defences but he let supporters down this time around.

Juan Mata has done some really great things playing for Manchester United, but at this point with Alexis Sanchez, Romelu Lukaku, Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial and Jesse Lingard in the squad he should be bottom of the pecking order. Just doesn't fit what's required.

I’ve long wondered what would happen if Juan Mata was finally allowed to play 90 minutes. Now we know, the apocalypse.

Same old story from United. Too static, Mata & Sanchez drifting inside too much. Young & Valencia don't offer any real threat going forward. If we want to win the league next year we need new FBs desperately.

Mata was terrible today, one of his worst games. But how he played 90mins is worse than terrible.

Disgraceful performance how Mata played a full 90 minutes I will never understand

Juan Mata embarrassing today, imagine if Martial put in that performance, we’d never see him again
