Manchester United never gave up and grabbed a hugely important three points at home to Watford FC, courtesy of a fantastic piece of brilliance from Juan Mata. The 27-year old was captain on the night and he seemed to relish the role, particularly as he pushed the team forward in the second half.
The #10 was everywhere, picking up the ball in attacking areas, laying it off and then making a good run to receive it again. It was without doubt one of his best performances of the season, and it was topped off with an outstanding free-kick.
As you’d expect, Manchester United fans were full of praise for the fan-favourite all over Twitter, so we’ve picked out some of the best tweets, so check them out below.
