Manchester United ace Juan Mata could be set to star in the No.10 position tonight, according to Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf.
With the Red Devils set to take on PSV in the Champions League group stages this evening, the newspaper believes Mata could play off Belgian international Marouane Fellaini.
Mata, of course, has starred on the right-hand side of the midfield for the Red Devils for some time now despite previously having enjoyed success in the No.10 role.

The Spanish international enjoyed a wonderful period at Chelsea in that position but has had to settle for a place out wide under the Louis van Gaal regime in Manchester.
The United boss handed Memphis a role behind Wayne Rooney in the early stages of the campaign, while Mata's compatriot Ander Herrera occupied the position in the club's 3-1 victory over rivals Liverpool this past weekend.
Ideal for Mata
It appears that Van Gaal is still tinkering with his Manchester United side. It certainly seems that the United boss is still trying to get the right balance for the Red Devils in his pursuit of glory on the domestic scene.
Perhaps, then, Mata really will be handed the chance to prove his credentials from a central role tonight. The former Chelsea man certainly appears to be United's most natural No.10, but Van Gaal has seemingly been intent on placing him out on the right.
With excellent technical ability and an eye for a pass, it makes sense for Mata to play off the striker. This evening's game could prove the perfect chance for the dynamic midfielder to impress his boss.
