Juan Mata – We are moving in the right direction
The 28-year-old opened up the scoring for Manchester United with Anthony Martial's 60th-minute strike sealing the three points to help Jose Mourinho's side climb to fifth in the Premier League.
United have now gone 16 games unbeaten in the league and find themselves just one point behind rivals Manchester City in the race for a top-four finish.
And Mata is hopeful United can maintain this form and continue to climb the table as they bid to regain Champions League football.
Juan Mata: "When you play good football and get the three points it is a step forward but we need to keep going. It was a convincing performance and we are very happy today.
