Juan Mata Starts First Game for Manchester United Since January 17

Juan MataJuan Mata will start his first game for Manchester United since January 17, as Louis van Gaal looks to shake things up against Tottenham.

Mata, having joined the club for £37.1million in January 2014, has struggled to make an impact since the turn of the year, only making three starts.

His last appearance in Van Gaal’s starting XI came on January 17 against Queens Park Rangers, but since then he has only made four fleeting appearances off the bench.

Van Gaal has made three changes to his United team from the side that faced Arsenal in the FA Cup on March 9.

Mata’s inclusion is a straight swap for the suspended Angel di Maria, while Phil Jones and Michael Carrick replace Luke Shaw and Marcos Rojo.

United are fourth in the Premier League, but can close the gap on Arsenal to one point with a victory against Tottenham.
