It’s official, Juan Mata is a magician.
Just before the hour mark at Anfield on Sunday, Manchester United broke free and Mata picked up the ball on the right flank before feeding it into Angel di Maria.

Mata continued his run and Di Maria dinked a lovely ball in his direction, as the Spanish international swiveled and volleyed home from an impossible position in mid-air to put the Red Devils 2-0 up and they went on to win 2-1 to put them five points clear in the race for the top four.
