Mata converted a penalty in Saturday's 2-0 victory over West Brom.

This was Mata's first spot kick of the season, earned after Gareth McAuley brought down Anthony Martial in the box. The goal was Mata's fourth of the season, but his first since Sept. 26. After a fantastic September that saw him score two goals and tally three assists in just three matches, in October, he was unable to find the score sheet. The 27-year-old is one of the most creative players on the United roster and with how well Anthony Martial and Jesse Lingard are playing, goals should start coming for the somewhat underwhelming United side.

Mata was dropped on the bench in the Champions League draw with CSKA Moscow on Wednesday because he needed a rest, revealed manager Louis van Gaal.

Mata was subbed at half time on Saturday against Everton and did not play on Wednesday against CSKA Moscow but United boss van Gaal clarified that those moves are not injury related and he just wanted to give the Spaniard a breather before the big clash with their city rivals. Expect Mata to be right back in the starting XI on Sunday.

Mata proved to be the catalyst in Manchester United's 2-1 comeback win against Wolfsburg in Tuesday's Champions League match, providing a goal and an assist.

Mata first scored from the penalty spot to level the game, and then provided a nice flick to Chris Smalling inside the box in the second half for a score. The Smalling goal completed the team's comeback at home.

Mata recorded a goal and an assist while getting off four shots in a 3-0 win over Sunderland on Saturday.

Mata has been in spectacular form this season, recording three goals and three assists in seven games played. He is proving to be the heart of the offense for Manchester United and he's essentially taken over the Wayne Rooney role. With Manchester United proving to be one of the most dangerous offenses in the Premier League, Mata is a good candidate for double-digit assists and potentially double-digit goals. He'll look to keep this form up against Arsenal next Saturday.

Mata scored a goal on two shots (one on target) in Sunday's 3-2 victory over Southampton.

Mata did well to slot the third goal of the game home, collecting a rebound off Memphis' shot that hit the post and burying it into the net. The attacking midfielder has two goals and two assists in six Premier League appearances this season and is one of the most industrious players on the pitch when moving forward.

Mata picked up an assist in Saturday's 3-1 victory over Liverpool.

Mata found Daley Blind off a set piece to open the scoring on Saturday, en route to a big win for United. The assist was the second of Mata's Premier League season, plus one during Champions League play as well. After only four assists during league play last season, Mata looks in good shape to exceed that total by season's end.

Mata tallied an assist on Friday's only goal in United's 1-0 victory over Aston Villa.

On what was otherwise a relatively quiet day for Mata, he provided a nice ball to Adnan Januzaj in the 29th minute, who did plenty on his own to score the only goal of Friday's match. Entering his third season in Manchester, the Spain international will look to lock down his starting spot in the crowded United midfield.

Mata scored from the penalty spot in the 19th minute of Manchester United's 2-1 win over Crystal Palace on Saturday.

It was unclear who would be taking a Manchester United penalty after Robin van Persie missed last weekend, especially after manager Louis van Gaal noted that Wayne Rooney missed one earlier this season until he missed one. Mata tied Ander Herrera with a team-high three shots, and he looks poised to maintain his starting spot for the last two games of the season.
