Juan Mata turned in perhaps his finest performance as a Red Devil to date, scoring twice to give Manchester United enough to beat Liverpool 1-2 which sees them five points clear of fifth place.
Mata was world class today and it spells trouble for United's opponents for the run in. He scored first in the 14th minute when a crisp attack saw Ander Herrera pick him out wide right with a lovely through ball. Mata struck with his weaker foot and got plenty of power behind it to beat Simon Mignolet inside the far post. With a man advantage in the second half, newly inserted Angel Di Maria found Mata just inside the box and the Spaniard delivered a dazzling scissor kick to net his second of the match and seventh of the season. Wayne Rooney could not convert a penalty near the end and there was plenty of drama throughout the day but the space between United and Liverpool in the table is the only thing that "Mata"s.
