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.

But there was absolutely no doubting which of the star-studded line-up was having the most impressive performance, with Mata’s touch, reading of the game and all-round creativity catching the eye of onlookers on social media.

The 28-year-old’s career at Old Trafford looked dead in the water when Jose Mourinho arrived last summer, but now it seems he’s won the Portuguese coach over – much to the delight of this lot:

Just how good a player is Mata?
