Mata has struggled for first-team football this season but has impressed in recent weeks and his goal against Liverpool led to a variety of responses from Twitter users- most of whom believe he is wasted out of the starting line-up.

Ander Herrera played a great through ball to Mata, who took one great touch and then finished. The game is not over yet- but United are in the driving seat.
