Juan Mata made his first appearance at Old Trafford in a Premier League game this season when he came on to face Norwich City.
With the score tied 2-2, both Mata and Cristiano Ronaldo were lining up to take a free-kick in the 76th minute
Mata was seen speaking with Ronaldo before the latter smashed the ball into Tim Krul’s net, thus completing his hat-trick and winning the game for us.
After the game, the official Manchester United account tweeted a photo of the duo and captioned it: “We all know what happened next.

Mata retweeted their post and jokingly wrote: “Ok Cristiano, you shoot.”
That’s good-natured banter from the Spaniard, whose contract expires in the summer. He’s expected to leave Old Trafford for free.
