Man Utd midfielder Matic: Good knowing Lukaku off the mark

Man Utd midfielder Matic: Good knowing Lukaku off the mark

The 23-year-old struggled in stages of United's pre-season but Mourinho insists the Sweden global will be given enough time to settle in at the club. Is Tiemoue Bakayoko a similar type of player to Matic?

Despite that miss potentially denying United a chance at taking the Champions League winners the distance, Mournho was happy with his new number nine.

"You would applaud that but those players aren't even at the club now. They allowed [Eden] Hazard, [Cesc] Fabregas and whoever else was playing that bit of freedom and I'm hoping he'll do that for United for [Paul] Pogba, [Anthony] Martial, [Jesse] Lingard and [Henrikh] Mkhitaryan". He was good in some games, inexperienced in others.

Chelsea have strengthened too, but not as much as they would have liked given the added demands of Champions League football - but Giggs thinks they will still be in the mix.

"I'm not sure how good Bakayako is going to be for Chelsea, but he's going to have to be some player to get to the level of Matic".

Neville also expects the arrival of Matic to help Paul Pogba fulfil his potential at Old Trafford. "Every opponent wants to win every match, every opponent gives you a hard time".

"He has somebody in there that will fill the holes when he vacates them, he has licence to go wherever he wants and he [Matic] will provide that stability for the back four".

Matic is one of three signings that United have made so far this summer, with defender Victor Lindelof having joined from Benfica, while striker Romelu Lukaku has arrived from Everton. This year is his year.

Speaking to Sky Sports News on Tuesday, Neville said: "I said last season that the title will come to Manchester and was badly wrong but I do feel it will be between City and United this time".
