Juan Mata might be away in Spain on international duty but he can’t get away from Manchester United’s 3-0 loss to Arsenal thanks a certain Santi Cazorla who keeps reminding him of the score.
Cazorla played part of a midfield which overpowered Man United and despite Mata going into the game in great form, he wasn’t able to stamp his authority on the game.
While Mata will want to put the result in the past, it doesn’t sound like Cazorla is going to let him forget any time soon.
“I’ve been eating at the same table as Santi Cazorla and he keeps reminding me that Arsenal beat us 3-0 at the weekend,” Mata said. “Santi is a crack.”
As much as the loss hurts, United fans would be doing just the same thing to Arsenal fans and taunting them had the result been reversed, so they can have their moment in the spotlight.
What is important from this point onwards is to react to the loss with a win against Everton and not let the loss to Arsenal be the start of a slip down the Premier League table.
