And after seeing his display, United fans took to Twitter to voice their thoughts on the Spaniard.

A couple of fans of the Manchester side described him as “under-rated”, with one supporter in particular claiming that only Paul Pogba comes close to being able to match the Spaniard’s ability to “deliver the perfect pass”.

Another couple of United supporters questioned how Ole Gunnar Solskjaer continues to pick Jesse Lingard over him in general, with the England international playing 27 times compared to Mata’s 21 appearances.

Despite entering the twilight stages of his footballing career, Mata well and truly rolled back the years with a vintage performance against Norwich. The Spaniard looked threatening every time he received the ball, and it was little surprise to see him pick up two assists. Whilst age may determine he won’t be able to play three games in a week for the club, he should surely feature prominently in Solskjaer’s plans whenever United take to the field.

Meanwhile, Manchester United have fans reacted to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s update on the club’s transfer plans.
