Manchester United slumped to a 2-1 loss at relegation-threatened Stoke in the Premier League on Saturday to puncture the optimism generated by Juan Mata's arrival and leave the reigning champions with a huge task to finish in the Champions League positions.
Arsenal's title push was slowed by a 2-2 tie at Southampton, Liverpool routed Everton and American goalkeeper Tim Howard 4-0 in the Merseyside derby and Robin van Persie scored in his return from an injury layoff for Manchester United in a 2-0 victory over last-place Cardiff in the Premier League on Tuesday night.
With record signing Juan Mata slotting seamlessly into the team and fit-again Robin van Persie back to scoring again, a return to the good times could be just around the corner for Manchester United.
The focus will be on Juan Mata when he makes his Manchester United debut on Tuesday, although a relic from the club's golden past is heading to Old Trafford looking to steal the spotlight from the Spain midfielder.

"It was a very special day for me," Mata said. "My debut, and a victory. It was perfect."
"It was really important," said Mata, who completed his 37.1 million pound ($61.2 million) switch to United on Saturday. "The Spain squad is really difficult to get into, there are a lot of players fighting for positions to be in the last 23 going to Brazil. I hope this is a great chance for me to keep playing, keep fit and show the manager of the national team I want to be there, I have to be there. I don't know what would have happened if I had stayed at Chelsea."
