Juan Mata Stars in Manchester United’s win over Brentford

Forgotten man, Juan Mata put in a stellar performance in midfield in Monday night as Manchester United brushed aside Brentford.

The home side were at their best on the night, and deservedly took the lead through Bruno Fernandes after youngster, Elanga sent an inviting cross into the box.

Cristiano Ronaldo doubled the tally in the second half with a penalty he won, after he was felled by Henry. Ronaldo had pushed the defender away close to the box and in a bid to win the ball back, he went after the Portuguese forward and pushed him down.

Brentford continued spurning chance after chance and United made them pay, with Varane scoring with 18 minutes left on the clock.

This was United’s last home game of the season and it will also be the end for the likes of Matic, as the club awaits yet another manager to take over.
