Securing a much needed win against Wolves, Manchester United advance through to the 4th Round of FA Cup where they will go up against Watford or Tranmere Rovers.
The supporters are now relieved a bit following this victory as their Premier League title hopes were crushed early on this season. With the Champions League qualification spot doubtful, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer could hold on to the club if he could get his hands on the FA Cup this season.
Regardless, the game stood at stalemate with either teams failing to score in the first half. However, Juan Mata pleased the Old Trafford faithful by displaying a classy performance in the match and scoring the only goal, which occurred to be the winner for his side in the latter half.
Following a smooth build up from a counter, the 31-year-old chipped the keeper after receiving the ball in an attempt to increase the goal tally which got beautifully placed inside the net.
Plenty of figures and supporters praised the 31-year-old for his fruitful effort on goal, however, let’s highlight the praise from the talented United goalkeeper De Gea.
The Spaniard was left out from this match, as the club manager decided to rest the star and deploy Sergio Romero to guard their goal post. The decision went well with the team maintaining a clean sheet, adding to the victory.
The goalkeeper wrote, “My guy @juanmata.” in Twitter which has got quite a lot of retweets in such a short time.
