Manchester United fans must have been fearing the worst when Luke Shaw diverted Emil Krafth"s cross into his own net after only two minutes at St James" Park

当卢克·肖(Luke Shaw)在圣詹姆斯公园(St James"s Park)仅仅两分钟后就将埃米尔·克拉夫特(Emil Krafth)的十字架转移到自己的网中时,曼联球迷一定一直在担心最糟糕的情况

It seemed Ole Gunnar Solskjaer"s side had picked up where they left off against Tottenham


The defending in the build-up to the goal was certainly reminiscent of that 6-1 thrashing at Old Trafford


Thankfully for Manchester United, however, the parallels ended there


They had to wait until the 86th minute to move in front, but in the end the victory was emphatic and well deserved


Solskjaer, under pressure after United"s joint-worst defeat of the Premier League era, made five changes from the side thrashed by Spurs and most of the focus ahead of kick-off fell on the players left out


Paul Pogba was the most high-profile to lose his spot

There was no place in the side for Donny van de Beek or Alex Telles either

But it was one of the players who came into the side who made the biggest impact on the game


Juan Mata had not played a single minute of Manchester United"s first three Premier League fixtures this season

胡安·马塔(Juan Mata)本赛季没有踢过曼联前三场英超联赛比赛的一分钟

In fact, he had not made a single start in the competition since February


On this evidence, however, the 32-year-old still has plenty to offer


Mata was not among the scorers at St James" Park - those were Harry Maguire, Bruno Fernandes, Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Marcus Rashford - but United"s best attacking performance in months owed more to him than anyone else

马塔(Mata)不在圣詹姆斯公园(St James"s Park)的得分手之中-哈里·马奎尔(Harry Maguire),布鲁诺·费尔南德斯(Bruno Fernandes),亚伦·旺·比萨卡(Aaron Wan-Bissaka)和马库斯·拉什福德(Marcus Rashford)-但曼联数月来最佳的进攻表现对他而言应归功于他

对赌协议The Spaniard was outstanding from start to finish


Mata lined up on the right-hand side of United"s attack, the position occupied by Mason Greenwood against Spurs, but his interpretation of the role was very different


What he lacks in pace and power, he makes up for in vision and imagination


They are qualities United"s attack often lacks


Mata popped up everywhere, drifting into pockets of space wherever he saw them, creating space for Wan-Bissaka to bomb forward on the overlap, and linking up with Fernandes at every opportunity


By the end, the pair had exchanged passes 31 times


Their combination play resulted in a goal after 19 minutes, only for VAR to rule it out for offside, and there were plenty more examples


Shortly after half-time, there was another mesmerising one-two to manufacture an opening for Fred


Mata provided Fernandes with the service he has lacked for much of this season and the Portuguese was not the only one to benefit for his presence


Over the course of the 90 minutes, there were also superb passes for Wan-Bissaka and Rashford, one of which released the latter in the build-up to Fernandes" goal


Mata knitted everything together, his touchmap underlining his influence all over the pitch, and it was exactly what United needed


Their biggest issue under Solskjaer has been an inability to break down opponents who sit deep and prevent them from playing on the break


It was for precisely that reason that the trip to St James" Park looked like an awkward one


But with Mata orchestrating proceedings, it was not a problem


Get | Get PL goal alertsAll offers for the new seasonPremier League table | FixturesInstead, Solskjaer"s side were slick in possession and created scoring chances with ease


Indeed, it was only thanks to Newcastle goalkeeper Karl Darlow"s sharp reflexes that the game was not dead and buried long before the late flurry of goals that sealed the victory


The statistics underlined their effectiveness


United"s total of 28 shots, including 14 on target, was the highest by any Premier League side in a single game so far this season对赌协议


It was also more than United managed in any game in the whole of the last campaign


Mata only registered one assist, the corner from which Maguire headed home United"s equaliser, but his influence was far greater than that and Solskjaer acknowledged as much in his post-match press conference, praising him for grasping his opportunity after his spell out of the side


"He played fantastic," said Solskjaer


"He"s such a professional and everyone in the team knows his quality


He"s been so patient waiting for his chance


"I get a lot of questions, "Why doesn"t he play? Why doesn"t he play?" But it"s because we have many good players, and it"s about taking your chances when you do


Juan has definitely done so." Mata walked off the pitch with a grin on his face when he made way for Nemanja Matic in the final few minutes of the game and Solskjaer looked similarly elated after the final whistle

Juan确实做到了。” Mata在比赛的最后几分钟让Nemanja Matic出场时脸上露出了笑容,Solskjaer在最后的哨声后看上去也兴高采烈

The manager"s credentials had been questioned during United"s poor start to the season and the scrutiny won"t end with this victory - especially with games against Paris Saint-Germain, Chelsea, RB Leipzig and Arsenal to come in the weeks ahead


But the pressure on his shoulders ahead of that testing run of fixtures is at least a little lighter than it was before kick-off at St James" Park, and that"s largely thanks to his decision to turn to Mata
