Mkhi surprised Chelsea sold Matic to United

At Manchester United's Old Trafford stadium, Alec Monopoly, Art Provocateur for TAG Heuer, has created a one of a kind mural, to be displayed at the stadium with contribution from Paul Pogba, Victor Lindelof, Jesse Lingard, Michael Carrick and Chris Smalling.

Matic stole the show for the Red Devils in their sizzling start to the 2017/18 Premier League campaign as we thumped West Ham 4- 0, a game in which Pogba found the back of the net once.

Matic was exceptional against West Ham as he settled in nearly instantly, showcasing he doesn't only have the ability to control the game, but also to hold onto the ball and dribble through opposition players, seeing him setting up counter attacks further up the field. I always knew he was a good player but coming up close to him in training and how he's performed with us, it's gone to a whole new level of appreciation.

For all the criticism of Lukaku, most of which stemmed from a viral video of his worst first touches, most teams will be fearful of coming up against United's attack, spearheaded by the 24-year-old Belgian.

"It's a very tall dressing room but you've got to handle yourself and let them score the headers", joked Lingard.

Conte will like his direct, pacy running as he looks to provide more supply to new striker Alvaro Morata - and Arsenal may just feel like cashing in rather than potentially losing their man for nothing next summer, although they will be reluctant to sell to a Premier League competitor. Now I'm happy to be back. "When I finished, I always felt like I'd missed something at Manchester United because I wasn't a first-team player. I grew up a lot in Italy and I have come back as a man".

Pogba is quoted in The Independent as saying: "Matic was a key player on Sun day and Romelu scored two goals, so it is what we wanted and what we expect".

"But it is only one game".

Steven Gerrard has revealed which Manchester United player he would like to see sign for Liverpool.

Liverpool made an unconvincing start to the Premier League season, drawing 3-3 at Watford, where their defensive problems resurfaced.
