Everbody is Drooling Over Juan Mata’s Performance Tonight

Manchester United supporters and football fans in general are absolutely raving about Juan Mata‘s performance against Hull City in the EFL Cup tonight.

The elegant Spaniard took his place in the attacking midfield trio alongside Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Wayne Rooney, with Marcus Rashford deployed as the lone striker.
