Spirits are bound to be high at Manchester United’s Carrington training ground this week following their victory over Tottenham at Old Trafford on Saturday.
Anthony Martial’s goal was enough to secure a late 1-0 win over their Premier League rivals, but it seems Juan Mata, who was an unused substitute, is soaking up the admiration.
David De Gea seems to have taken a liking to his United and Spanish compatriot, shown by a hilarious post on Twitter by Mata.

The Spaniard’s well put together tweet regarding De Gea shows the goalkeeper engaging in a heated gaze at the United midfielder.
‘Find someone who looks at you the way David De Gea looks at me,’ he writes.
The post was met extremely well by football fans, with many drawing comparisons with others from the past.

Antoine Griezmann has also been thrown into the mix with this stare at Diego Costa
Antoine Griezmann got a mention, as the Frenchman was pictured recently directing a similar look towards new arrival Diego Costa during Atletico Madrid training.
Both were trumped it seems though, by Danny Welbeck’s bemused stare at Per Mertesacker in 2015-16 as the defended a free kick.
Team spirit at United though, will not be a problem heading into their Champions League clash with Benfica on Tuesday, as Jose Mourinho will look to book an early spot in the last 16 and maintain their 100 per cent European record this season.
