Mata: Very nice playing with this Man Utd attack

Juan Mata was delighted to be part of Manchester United's 4-0 rout of Norwich City.

The Reds' attackers enjoyed themselves in the Premier League clash, with Marcus Rashford scoring twice on his 200th appearance for the club. Anthony Martial netted a superb header and substitute Mason Greenwood came on to add his name to the scoresheet.

Mata said, “It was very nice to play today.

"We found spaces, we found the pockets and we could play some balls into our strikers all over the pitch. I think that is a good sign.

“It is very nice for a player like me to play with these kind of players. They make runs and you can play the ball either into their feet or in behind and create a good ball into a goal. That is important to us as playmakers.

"Norwich are a team that tries to play out from the back and they dare to play that way. They have personality. I like the way they try to play, obviously they are not getting results because this is the Premier League but if you don't have a good day they can play, have the possession and they can create chances like the one they had in the first half that David (De Gea) made a great save from."
