Manchester United fans were delighted with Juan Mata‘s performance against Watford at Old Trafford on Saturday afternoon.
He found the opening goal of the game in the first-half as he produced the goods once again, finding the back of the net after being played in from Martial’s cross out wide.
Here’s what fans on social media had to say about his performance.
Juan Mata = United's Key Player

There's great irony in Juan Mata bailing out Mourinho time and time again this season.

Simpletons don't see what Juan Mata been doing all day, dragging defenders on him, running into space behind Ibra, led to 4 big chances.

He’s been involved in goals time and time again this season and I find it staggering that Mourinho still doesn’t play him in as many of our games as possible.
Mata deserves to start each week and following his performance against Watford, the Portuguese boss will feel obliged to play the same midfield trio, especially after seeing them link up so well.
He has scored in successive Premier League games for Man United for the first time since September 2015 and hopes are he can keep himself in the side as he’s been undroppable.
