Matic is a man on mission
The giant midfielder embarked on a superlative run to leave the West Ham players in his wake. Sliding the ball on to his right, Matic took a touch to go beyond two players and completed the dribble with a quick shimmy past the third. All in all it was one of the highlights of the game, which Manchester United dominated throughout.
Much of it came through their new man from Chelsea, who dictated proceedings from the middle of the park. Spraying passes and recycling possession, the Bosnian proved too much for the Hammers.
An attacking midfielder in his younger days, Nemanja Matic might have a lot more in his locker than what has been made of him.
Certainly for the Red Devils, they have got a bargain with a potential to become one of the greatest holding midfielders of the game. At 6’3″ he is adept at dealing with the physical nature of the Premier League and if opening day is anything to go buy, the former Benfica Player of the Season has got the skills to complement it.
