Jefferson Farfan opened the scoring in the 39th, converting from close range after Sead Kolasinac outran Hannover defender Marcelo on the left. Farfan instigated Schalkes second goal five minutes later, playing through a brilliant ball for Atsuto Uchida, who cut back for Klaas Jan Huntelaar and he in turn left it for the better positioned Max Meyer to stroke home. Huntelaar headed over early in the second half and Meyer drew a good stop from Hannover keeper Ron-Robert Zieler as the home side came closest to adding to the scoreline. "I think we played very well," Meyer said. "Thats three wins from three since the winter break. I think the training camp together did us well. It brought us closer together as a team." Schalke opened a four-point gap over Borussia Moenchengladbach to consolidate the last Champions League qualification place, while Hannover remains 10th after Tayfun Korkuts first defeat as coach. "Its a shame we couldnt get a point here," Zieler said. Already without injured captain Benedikt Hoewedes, Schalke has further concerns after defensive midfielder Roman Neustaedter went off with a knee injury in the first half, while Uchida went down clutching his knee late in the game.

Augsburg continued its fine Bundesliga season with a 4-1 win at Stuttgart earlier Sunday, condemning the home side to its fifth consecutive loss. The visitors opened the scoring against the run of play in the 35th minute through Arkadiusz Milik and built on the lead when Halil Altintop sprung the offside trap for Andre Hahn to finish with aplomb in the 44th. Stuttgarts hopes effectively evaporated with Vedad Ibisevics sending off in the 53rd. TV replays showed the Bosnian striker struck out at Jan-Ingwer Callsen-Brackers face in an off-the-ball incident, leading the Augsburg defender to fall to the ground. Hahn scored his second of the game three minutes later for his ninth of the season. Konstantin Rausch pulled one back for Stuttgart in the 62nd, but Tobias Werner ended any hopes of an unlikely comeback two minutes later. Augsburg stretched its unbeaten run to eight league games and climbed to eighth, while Stuttgart is just two points off the relegation zone after its seventh defeat in eight games. "Its a difficult period. There were many negative highlights for us today," Stuttgart sports director Fredi Bobic said. "The first goal was the turning point. We had them under control for 30 minutes before that." Bayern Munich maintained its 13-point lead over Bayer Leverkusen with a 2-0 win at Nuremberg in the Bavarian derby on Saturday.

ESPN FC reports that sources from both Old Trafford and Stamford Bridge claim that David Moyess struggling side is hopeful of securing the Spanish international by the weekend. Reports suggest that a transfer fee for Mata could reach upwards of 40 million pounds. Mata, voted Chelseas player of the year for the past two seasons, has found his playing time greatly limited this year under new manager Jose Mourinho and is believed to welcome the opportunity for first team football ahead of this summers World Cup in Brazil. Mata has only made 13 league appearances for Chelsea this season, registering twwo assists. Jabrill Peppers Pink Jersey. Last season, the 25-year-old tallied 12 goals and 17 assists in 35 appearances. He has played in two of Chelseas Champions League group stage match-ups this season, meaning that he is cup-tied and, therefore, would be unavilable for selection for Uniteds Champions League knockout encounter with Olympiacos next month if he were to move. Chelsea actively pursued United striker Wayne Rooney this past summer, but their pursuit was rebuffed and Mourinho admitted defeat in his chase. Rooney is not believed to be involved at all in these current Mata negotiations, even though Matas name came up as a makeweight in a potential deal in August.
