(Image): The proof that Juan Mata is still underrated

Juan Mata’s goal against Arsenal was an absolute beauty. Don’t let the fact that the goal was half empty distract you – he had to fit a fast moving ball coming across his body perfectly, first time, and he managed it with ease, showing perfect technique to slide the ball into the goal without hesitation.

This image from last night’s Monday Night Football broadcast shows just how regularly Mata is effective in the big games, showing him topping rivals Coutinho, Ozil, Silva and more to be top number ten for the big games.
