Juan Mata is loving life at Manchester United right now – and it’s showing both on and off the pitch.
Jose Mourinho‘s side are bang on form following a sticky start to the season.
Although the thought of remaining in sixth spot after six consecutive Premier League wins on the trot does seem disheartening, you get the feeling United have hit a turning point.
Back to his best
And Mata has been an influential part of the team this season, despite the resurgence of Henrikh Mkhitaryan meaning limited game time.
Not so long ago it seems there were fears for the playmaker’s future at Old Trafford given the arrival of Mourinho and their previous dealings at Chelsea.
Mata netted the opener in Monday night’s 2-0 win away to West Ham before Zlatan Ibrahimovic added the second to kill off the game.
Mata’s other strike this week
But that wasn’t his only stunning strike of the week – as he proved to be a hit at 10-pin bowling.
Mata uploaded a video to his Instagram tonight showing him knocking down all the pins.
And he showed off by managing to do it while looking the other way, even if he did admit that it took him around 137 attempts.
