Juan Mata eyes Leicester City revenge

Juan Mata is eager for Manchester United to avenge their 5-3 defeat at Leicester City when the two sides meet at the weekend.

Juan Mata has admitted that Manchester United are determined to gain a positive result from their Premier League encounter against Leicester City on Saturday afternoon.

Earlier in the season, United held a 2-0 and 3-1 advantage at the King Power Stadium, but the hosting Foxes eventually won the controversial encounter 5-3.

With the return meeting coming up, playmaker Mata has expressed United's desire to banish the result that left "a bad taste".

"Good results are the best reward for you, I know, that's why we are already focusing on the game against Leicester City at Old Trafford at the weekend," the Spaniard wrote in his blog.

"The previous match with them left us with a bad taste. We want to change that and offer a good game to our crowd."

Leicester have not won at Old Trafford since Tony Cottee scored the only goal of the game back in January 1998.
