Manchester United fans react to midfielder’s excellent performance vs Real Madrid

Manchester United fans were impressed with the showing of Juan Mata during the recent 2-1 friendly triumph over Real Madrid.

Jose Mourinho’s side ended the United States tour on a high with victory over the reigning European champions and the supporters were keen to highlight the positives from the trip.

Andreas Pereira has no doubt stood out with his performance from midfield but the faithful were equally impressed with combination play from Juan Mata and Alexis Sanchez upfront.

Mata has not enjoyed a consistent run of matches from the starting lineup under Jose Mourinho but the midfielder may have the opportunity to start the campaign after impressing alongside Sanchez.

Nevertheless, Jose Mourinho may have different plans in place with both Romelu Lukaku and Marcus Rashford expected to return in time for the Premier League opener against Leicester City next week.

Mata has contributed a goal and an assist in five pre-season games this summer and he should feature in the final friendly against Bayern Munich at the Allianz Arena on Sunday before the curtain raiser.
