“It was a very clever assist [from van de Beek for Mata’s goal]. He’s a very clever player,” Mata told Sky Sports.

“I love playing with him because he finds pockets and spaces.

“He understands football in a way that I like, which is playing one-twos, passing and moving, and the goal was like that.”
