Let's not get carried away about Juan Mata

One scissor kick doesn't make a superstar. Juan Mata is an incredible life-giving genius who writes whimsical blogs and scores winning goals against Liverpool. That much is not in dispute amongst reasonable people, and it should be enough to have you suspended from your place of work or favourite drinking hole* should you contest otherwise. However, it seems that because of his lovely points, and they are bloody lovely, the past year and a bit of disappointment is on the verge of being whitewashed. If Manchester United want to improve next year, then his recent improvement should not...

Mata was not trusted by José Mourinho or David Moyes but he is now showing in Louis van Gaal’s Manchester United that he can make the difference as a false right-winger• Andy Hunter: five talking points from AnfieldDuring his early days at Chelsea Juan Mata was nicknamed Johnny Kills, a literal translation of his name into English but also a nice fit with his sniper-ish skills as a creative No10.

It was the result of a defence-splitting pass by Ander Herrera, whose compatriot Juan Mata darted inside off the...

Manchester United vs. Tottenham Hotspur: how to watch EPL online, tv listings, live stream link

Juan Mata returns as United host Spurs at Old Trafford. The teams are out for Manchester United's Premier League clash with Tottenham Hotspur at Old Trafford. The good news is that Juan Mata makes his first league start since January; the bad news is that Rafael is made to wait for his return to first team action, despite his impressive showing for the reserves. Ángel Di María and Marcos Rojo are both omitted from the matchday squad (the former suspended, the latter injured), meaning Chris Smalling and Phil Jones make up a rather terrifying defensive pairing. Ander Herrera and Michael...
