Mata tallied an assist in Sunday's 1-0 victory over Manchester City.

After being suspended for the team's FA Cup match against West Ham, Mata returned to the starting XI for the Manchester derby and linked up well with the youthful Marcus Rashford for the match's only goal. That marks his fifth Premier League assist to go along with five goals in 30 matches.

FPL Barometer: No More Mata

The emergence of Marcus Rashford and the return of Wayne Rooney from injury has pushed Juan Mata further away from being a viable fantasy option.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Mata was shown the red card in the 25th minute of Sunday's 1-0 loss to West Brom.

The diminutive playmaker was already on a yellow card when he took a wild swing at Darren Fletcher, putting his team on the back foot for the rest of the match. Luckily for United, Mata will serve his suspension during Sunday's FA Cup tie with Liverpool, allowing him to play in their next Premier League match, which comes March 20 in the Manchester derby.

Mata blasted the winner on four shots (two on target) and added two dribbles and four crosses in Wednesday's 1-0 win over Watford.

Mata's magnificent strike from a free kick gave the Red Devils their fourth straight victory across all competitions and second in-a-row in Premier League. A much faster and sharper offensive play from United saw the creative midfielder lit up his stats sheet and put on a man-of-the-match performance. This galvanized, upfront, Red Devils' team increases Mata's fantasy upside significantly. He has five goals and three assists in 28 Premier League appearances and as a free kick master he turns into a very tempting fantasy option while the team is playing like that.

Mata missed a chance to put Manchester United into the aggregate lead against Midtjylland Thursday night when he missed a penalty with a soft shot that was saved by the keeper.

Mata was rescued by a top performance from Marcus Rashford on his debut, scoring twice. United advanced to the final 16 teams after being behind 2-1 on aggregate after the first match, but Mata's miss could have been much more damaging had the goals not started flowing later in the match.

Mata took four shots, with three on goal, in Saturday’s 2-1 loss versus Sunderland.

Mata took a shot near the top of the 18 that caused Sunderland’s Vito Mannone to leave a rebound in front of the net. Anthony Martial was able to chip in the equalizer for United. Mata’s next league match is against Arsenal on the 28th, though Manchester United will have two Europa League matches against Midtjylland and an FA cup match against Shrewsbury before the pivotal match versus Arsenal.

Mata is available off the bench Tuesday against Newcastle, as manager Louis van Gaal decided to rest him.

Jesse Lingard will move into the starting XI, though Ander Herrera could take on Mata's No. 10 role.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Mata got off 13 crosses and one shot in a scoreless draw against West Ham on Saturday.

None of the crosses really led to much, as both teams were parking the bus. Mata has had a pretty good season thus far, as he has four goals and three assists in 15 games played. There isn't anyone competing for Mata's minutes, so he should approach double-digit goals and assists come the end of the season.

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.
