‘He was so bad’, Man Utd fans disappointed with attacker’s performance vs West Brom

De Gea and Mata

Manchester United supporters were disappointed with the performance of Juan Mata during Sunday’s shock Premier League defeat at the hands of West Bromwich Albion.

Juan Mata has linked up well with Alexis Sanchez since the latter’s arrival at Old Trafford, but the Spaniard could not make the most of his start against the bottom club.

Whilst he was not entirely at fault for the club’s lean showing, the fans undoubtedly wanted to see more from the attacker, who has had good success against deep-plying defences.

Mata, of late, has been playing in a free role, and this has seemingly reduced the threat on the right flank with Antonio Valencia not being able to make overlapping runs on a regular basis.

The Spaniard obviously provides the guile in the attack which perfectly compliments Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez, but he has not been able to provide goals and assists unlike earlier in his career.

Moreover, there has been the focus to deliver more of the ball towards the left-wing since Sanchez’s arrival, and Mourinho needs to have tactics sorted out for the weekend FA Cup semi-final versus Spurs.
