Video: Set-piece strikes

In Manchester United's last Barclays Premier League outing, Juan Mata opened the scoring with a sweetly-struck free-kick at Newcastle United.

The Spaniard could emerge as a key taker of set-pieces following his move from Chelsea, although his effort was actually the fifth such goal for the Reds this season.

Wayne Rooney scored directly from three free-kicks (against Crystal Palace, West Brom and Manchester City) before the end of September and, of course, Robin van Persie's effort completed his hat-trick during the stirring comeback against Olympiacos in the Champions League.

Check out MUTV's video of the five free-kick goals and let's hope there is at least another one to come before the 2013/14 campaign draws to a close.
