Juan Mata: Midfield Maestro! | Manchester United 4-1 Leicester City | FANCAM

John spoke to us after Manchester United 4-1 Leicester City and tells us that Juan Mata was at his influential best in midfield today.

Manchester United beat Leicester City 4-1 at Old Trafford in a perfect performance with all four goals coming in a resurgent period in twenty minutes. Chris Smalling broke the deadlock in the 22nd minute of the match, scoring from a Daley Blind corner, with the Dutchman grabbing the assist, his first of the day. United then doubled their lead in the 37th minute through Juan Mata with a great team goal which saw Paul Pogba and Jesse Lingard combine with the latter earning the assist. The third goal came three minutes later courtesy of Marcus Rashford, from a Blind corner, straight into the path of the unmarked Mata, who then tee’d up the 18-year-old for his second goal this week. Pogba had a shot earlier in the match, which rocked the crossbar and I tweeted that his first goal was coming, maybe not today, but it was coming. It came two minutes later again from a Blind corner, with the Dutchman racking up a second assist of the afternoon in a great display of football at the Theatre of Dreams. United had decimated the champions in the first half of the match, a match the champions will be wanting to forget, even when they were still playing. Here is what I feel we learned in the 4-1 victory over the reigning Premier League champions.Agree? Comment below!
