Juan Mata in the FA Cup replay against Wolves was magnificent. His well taken goal in our 1-0 win against the visitors was a touch of class. Also he had an assist from a cross United scored from. In these last two games his form has been fantastic. The Spanish midfielder hasn’t started too many games this season.
However I am sure that once he continues in this good form, I believe that he’ll certainly get more playing time. He is providing the guile and creativity in midfield that we have been lacking this season. With Pogba out, he’s the man that we’ll have to rely on to help us create some of our goals.
Hopefully, we can get Bruno Fernandes in midfield soon, as United is presently negotiating with his club Sporting Lisbon. According to ESPN, Manchester United and Fernandes has already agreed personal terms. Both clubs are now trying to sort out the details of the deal. Once the Portuguese international has signed for United he would certainly help us in the creativity department. He also is an excellent goal scorer.
Mata whose form from last season and even this season hasn’t been good is now like a new player for us. We need his guile, creativity and experience to help us get into the top four places. We’re still in with a chance of winning one or two cup competitions this term. I hope Mata’s good form continues right to the end of the season.
