The rhapsody of Manchester United continues, as the Red Devils stormed through Newcastle with a 4-0 victory. Rooney and Van Persie were sidelined for this game, so Mata, Hernandez, Kagawa and Januzaj were the main protagonists of the victory.
Mata continued where he left off in the previous gameweek – two goals and an assist for Januzaj’s goal. It is clear he is enjoying being on the pitch and today he was the key player of the squad. Goal from a freekick, goal after a counter attack and an assist to wrap up a great day for Mata. He shared his joy on twitter :

Another player who seized the opportunity that was unexpectedly given to him, was the Mexican forward, Hernandez. Although he hit the post after going one-on-one with Newcastle’s goalkeeper, he scored a goal and assisted Mata for United’s second goal of the game. Perhaps, this will convince Moyes to include him in the starting lineup for the final games of the season, and possible give him a shot at Bayern Munich.
Why do we fall? To learn… Why do we get up? To SUCCEED!! Good win today!! #blessed #persistency#neverstop
Now, all thoughts are set on the game in Munich and the recovery of Rooney. Just a week ago, nobody gave any chance to Moyes and his players, but, it seems that players finally accepted his methods. To be honest, the game against Newcastle was probably the best game Manchester United played in the entire season. Clean sheet, constant threat, domination with and without ball in possession and four goals scored. Does Bayern have reasons to be afraid on Wednesday? They certainly do. United looked excellent against Newcastle, and Moyes might just use a very similar lineup against the Germans…
