Juan Mata shows his worth in the No.10 role against Leicester City

Manchester United fans were delighted with Juan Mata‘s magical display against Leicester City.

The Spaniard was deployed by Jose Mourinho in his preferred No.10 role and showcased his ability while Wayne Rooney was left on the bench.

His quick feet and precision passing demonstrated what the Portuguese boss was missing out on, by scoring Man United’s second goal and assisting the third, he put in a good argument for taking Rooney’s position in the starting XI permanently.

Here’s what fans on social media had to say about his performance.


After much criticism for his recent showings, Wayne Rooney was dropped in favour of Mata and the Spaniard took the opportunity with both hands producing a perfect display.

His showing has opened up another strong attacking option for Mourinho and in one of our most convincing victories since Sir Alex Ferguson’s retirement, his players has proven what his squad is capable of once all pieces fall into place.

Had it not been for Paul Pogba, he would have been up for the Man of the Match award, but it’ll be a brilliant boost for the squad moving forward as United fans can hope for even better results in the coming fixtures.
