Video: Manchester United's Juan Mata takes on his toughest challenge yet

Old Trafford Interior

We love Juan Mata, and we really do love his weekly YouTube challenge.

It really has become a highlight of our week, getting to see what challenge Manchester United's Juan Mata posts to his YouTube channel.

Over the past few weeks, we've seen the diminutive Spaniard take on some very interesting challenges, from some brilliant first touches to some extremely impressive blind-folded free-kicks.

If anything, it's a weekly reminder of just how much we like the midfielder and just how talented he is. So what is he up to this week?

Well, he's taking on a challenge which he described as 'impossible' - the football basket challenge. The basic idea is he gently volleys the ball into a basketball net.

Sounds easy in practice, but from his 10 attempts, Mata was only able to get two shots into the net before admitting defeat.

Manchester United fans will be hoping that he brings his shooting boots when their side take on Roberto Martinez's Everton looking to close in on their rivals, and Premier League leaders, Manchester City.
