Manchester United paid £37m last January to acquire the services of Juan Mata from Chelsea.
At the time it seemed like Chelsea were offering Man United a lifeline when they were most in need; an uncharacteristically charitable gesture from one Jose Mourinho.
However, Mata’s supposedly mixed performances since have caused many to question the wisdom of the deal.
The Spaniard’s stats tell another story, especially when compared to Chelsea’s star man Eden Hazard.
Mata actually has a better minutes to goal/assist ratio since he left Stamford Bridge than his old teammate Eden Hazard has managed.
