Manchester United made it six consecutive wins in the Premier League as second half strikes from Juan Mata and Zlatan Ibrahimovic earned the Red Devils a hard fought victory over West Ham United at the London Stadium on Monday.
On a night where officiating errors made a huge difference in the outcome of the match, Mourinho’s tactical acumen from the touchline proved just as crucial as the performances of those on the pitch with the two substitutions; Rashford and Mata combining to break the deadlock for Man United.
But while Mata deservedly took all the plaudits for his well taken goal, one aspect of his performance that many missed was his superb trickery on the ball moments after his goal.
As Michail Antonio bore down towards Mata in the Hammers’ box, the Spaniard in possession executed a superb feint which left Michail Antonio utterly bewildered.
Check out Mata’s feint below:
