Mata scored a goal on two shots (two on target) in Sunday's 3-1 victory over Bournemouth.

With a bevy of options in the United midfield—notably new signing Henrikh Mkhitaryan—Mata's place in the starting XI (or even in the squad) seemed tenuous. That speculation was ramped up when he was pulled at halftime of the Community Shield, but was reassured of his place and made good on his manager's confidence by breaking the deadlock in the 40th minute. Mata followed up his own shot with a cool finish to score United's first league goal under Jose Mourinho. Mata was eventually removed for Mkhitaryan on 75 minutes, but showed enough to likely keep his place in the starting XI.

DraftKings Fantasy Soccer: Saturday EPL Cheat Sheet

Many fantasy players are using midfield-eligible wingers in their forward spots, but RotoWire's Alex Spalding says don't forget about Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Juan Mata: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

August 10, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Mata is expected to stay with Manchester United and new manager Jose Mourinho, according to Sky Sports.

The midfielder was substituted on and then off in last week's Community Shield win, which generated speculation that he may not have a firm place in the new manager's plans. Sources indicate that the midfielder does have a role to play and will not be sold, though.

May 11, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Mata tallied an assist on one key pass and two dribbles in Tuesday's 3-2 loss to West Ham.

The Red Devils couldn't muster much offensively and outside the assist Mata couldn't shine much with almost anything else. He was in a dip for a while but with a goal and assist in his last two games he seems to be regaining his creative mojo. The midfielder will finish the season on Sunday at Old Trafford with an affair with the Cherries who have the second-worst defense in the league at the moment.

May 8, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Mata bagged the winner on two shots (one on target) and added six crosses in Saturday's 1-0 win over Norwich.

After a deserving break, Mata returned to the starting XI with a bang. A very precisely pointed strike found the Canaries' net for a vital, in the top four pursuit, winner. Surprisingly he was deployed on the right wing with Jesse Lingard shifted to the center. The former, however, still managed to find himself busy and checked in a solid fantasy output. That's his first goal in over two months and he now goes up to six goals and four assists taking part in every single Premier League game, thus far this season. The Red Devils will have a midweek affair with the Hammers before the season finale against the Cherries.

March 20, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

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.

March 6, 2016

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.

March 2, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

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.

February 26, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

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.
