Juan Mata has described Manchester United’s emphatic 4-1 win against Fulham as the “complete performance”, and has called for more of the same.

Mata scored the second goal as United thrashed a hapless Fulham side 4-1 at Old Trafford on Saturday.

It was an impressive first half from Jose Mourinho’s side as they were three goals up at halftime, and Mata was delighted with their display and urged his teammates to replicate yesterday’s performance in every game.

“It’s not easy,” Mata told Sky Sports.

“Obviously it’s a very good position to be, but it’s not easy to keep that level of intensity. Subconsciously you relax a little bit when you’re three goals ahead.
