VIDEO: Mata provides miraculous assist for Herrera in advert

Manchester United midfielder Juan Mata showed off some impressive skills in an advert with Ander Herrera.

Manchester United midfielder Juan Mata could be under pressure to stay in the side following summer transfer deals for Daley Blind and Angel Di Maria.

However, despite United’s inconsistent start to the season Mata appears to be in good form, providing an impressive assist for teammate Ander Herrera as the pair filmed an advert for Adidas.

Mata chipped the ball perfectly onto the bar before Herrera turned quickly to slam the ball into the back of the net.

Just how many takes it took for the Spaniard to perfectly hit the bar to create the assist is unclear but the precision is impressive.

Mata could be the man initially sacrificed when the Premier League returns to our screens following the current international break for the start of the European qualifying games.

Louis van Gaal has to fit several top central midfield players into just three positions if he sticks with the 3-5-2 formation United have used so far this season.
