It was just inevitable that Juan Mata would score the first goal of the Jose Mourinho era at Manchester United, wasn't it?
It all came from a horrible backpass from Bournemouth's Simon Francis during their opening match of the season, which Artur Boruc almost dealt with before Mata was presented with a simple tap-in to put United 1-0 up.
Imagine hitting a backpass so slowly that Juan Mata outpaces your goalkeeper

Mourinho and Mata, of course, have bucketloads of backstory.
The Portuguese sold Mata to United when he was Chelsea boss, and last week served him the indignity of being a substitute who got subbed off in the Community Shield.

So naturally everyone imagined Mourinho was very happy for him.

The Mourinho / Mata feud continues with Mourinho punching the air in anger when Mata scored, then turning away in disgust

Of course, even scoring a goal doesn't guarantee anything when Mourinho is boss.
MOURINHO (giggling): I'm fucking doing it boys
SUBS: (laughing): Ah boss no

Juan Mata proving he's worth the £2 million fee that Jose Mourinho is going to sell him to Everton for.

Looking forward to the 46th minute when Mourinho subs off Mata, then dumps a load of Manure on him like Biff in Back To The Future.

Of course United fans were quick to lob a few grenades Chelsea's way.

Mostly though, people were just happy for Mata, one of the Premier League's more popular players.
Absolutely love that Juan Mata scores the first Premier League goal for Manchester United under José Mourinho.

I'm so happy Mata scored our very first goal this season after all the rumors he's been through ? #BOUMUN

Mata was, of course, substituted with about 15 minutes to go and United leading 3-1 - but we're guessing he was a little happier with the situation than he was last week.
