Man Utd vs. Fulham takes place this afternoon in the Premier League.

The game, which takes place at Old Trafford, is scheduled to kick off at 16:00 GMT and airs live in the UK on Sky Sports 1/Sky Sports 1 HD.

Speaking ahead of the game, Manchester United's record signing Juan Mata says he has been working hard on building an understanding with Wayne Rooney and Robin van Persie.

Mata lined up alongside Rooney and Van Persie for the first time for last weekend's 2-1 defeat at Stoke.

The Spain international, who joined David Moyes' side from Chelsea for a club record £37.1million, has revealed he already feels settled at the club, and told MUTV: "We have been working on things in training to try to link better and understand each other better.

"But when you talk about players like them, they are top players so it's easy to play with them."

He continued: "I want to do my best to help the team. I think my main position on the pitch is to assist and to try to provide opportunities to the strikers. But if I can score then that is even better.

"It's true that in my career I have always scored a good amount of goals as a midfielder. And I will try to score as many goals as I can because it is the best feeling in the world."

Mata also praised his new team-mates, including his friend David De Gea, for helping him settle at the club quickly.

"The welcome I've had from the lads, from the club, from the manager and the fans from the first day since I came here has been amazing," he added.

"I will never forget my debut at Old Trafford – seeing the fans in the warm-up wearing my shirt, it was fantastic. Hopefully we can win as many games until the end of the season for them because they deserve that from us.

"David was very important for me coming here. The first week he was with me, almost all the time he was calling me to check I was okay and asking what I needed. I have known him since we were kids and I'm very happy to be here with him."
