Mata capped off a good performance from Man United with the team’s third goal to take them one point ahead of Manchester City at the summit.
The Spaniard kept his place on the right wing and constantly came inside to wreak havoc for Sunderland’s defence.

It was another classy showing from Mata, who seems to be really taking to his role on the right. Since starting there last season, the Spaniard has picked up goals and assists with relative ease, proving to be a crucial part of United’s side.
The 27-year-old will hope he can continue his good form as United look for their first win in this season’s Champions League when Wolfsburg visit Old Trafford. It is a crucial game for United and Mata will want to help the side get their European run going.
