Juan Mata made his Manchester United debut tonight as the Red Devils beat Cardiff 2-0 at Old Trafford.


The Spaniard, who completed his £37.1m move from rivals Chelsea last week, started the move that led to Robin van Persie’s opener, and bagged an assist of sorts for Ashley Young’s devastating second.

Mata made 52 passes during the game, more than any other who has made their debut as a Manchester United player , and had a pass completion rate of 86.5%.


It was certainly a good night’s work for the diminutive 25-year-old, who starts off life in red with a morale-boosting win.
