(Video) Mata makes it Juan nill from the spot against Luton Town

Manchester United midfielder Juan Mata has fired the Reds into the lead in their Third Round Carabao Cup tie against Championship outfit Luton Town tonight.

United have endured a somewhat underwhelming first-half after failing to break Luton town’s regimented back-line.

However, a breakthrough finally came just before the end of the first-half when left-back Brandon Williams went down under a poor challenge just inside the box.

The referee wasted no time pointing the spot and up stepped Mata who neatly tucked the spot-kick home.

1-0 to United as they go into the break with one foot in the cup’s Fourth Round.
