Manchester United this season 2017/18

This season Manchester United began with a flying start.

They look good in ALL departments. Mourinho has done his job well.

One player I want to mention is Nemenja Matic. He is the key to the team in my opinion.

He added steel to the midfield. He replaces Hererra and Carrick to hold the ball in the middle of the park. He let Pogba and Mkhitaryan roam freely. He tackles the opponent in front of the 2 centre-backs.

The other player worth mentioning is Antony Martial. He is a supersub deployed when MU wants to kill the game after a narrow 1 goal lead. He is very different from Rashford. He is slower, but his presence after the 70th minute when opposing defenders are used to chasing Rashford (and tired by this time) will make an impact. Defenders will be confused when he comes in. Much like Ferguson did when he replaced York and Cole with Solskjear and Sheringham.

Let us enjoy all the Manchester United games.
