The result saw Manchester United stay in 4th position, where they lead Liverpool by 5 points, and Mata believes his excellent display was his best match ever since he joined from Chelsea back in January 2014.

The Spanish midfielder scored 2 goals at Anfield today, his second goal was a brilliant scissored volley that was played past Liverpool goal keeper Simon Mignolet, to help Louis van Gaal’s side claim a valuable three points as they attempt to finish in the top four.

He told Sky Sports after the match : “I think this is my best match ever in a United shirt ever since i joined from Chelsea“. Because of the rivalry it’s a massive game. In the history of English football it’s probably the biggest.

“To come here, win and score two goals is an unbelievable day for me. It [Mata’s second goal] has to be high. It was very important. After Gerrard was sent off we needed to score another goal because we knew Liverpool would push until the end.”

Michael Carrick added: “We’re delighted with the win. Second half wasn’t our best at all. First half we were excellent and the little magician produced again for us.” we are hoping to continue with this winning mentality until the end of the season as we still push hard for a comfortable place in the top 4.
