Juan Mata has taken to social media to reveal his disappointment at Manchester United not being able to beat Liverpool on Sunday.

The Red Devils had to come from a goal down to earn a point against the Merseyside outfit after Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s late goal cancelled out James Milner’s first-half penalty at Old Trafford.

Manchester United had been looking to win the game and keep pace with Chelsea at the top of the Premier League table.

Instead, they were forced to settle for a point, which left them 12 points behind the leaders and in sixth place in the Premier League table.

And Mata used his personal Instagram account to reflect on the result after Sunday’s draw.

Mata posted the picture above on the app and wrote: “Not the result we wanted, but we always fight until the end! Thanks for your unbelievable support 🔴 @manchesterunited @premierleague #mufc”
