Thanks to Matic, Manchester United Favorite Premier League Champion This Season

Former Manchester United striker Garth Crooks has great optimism for the Red Devils this season. 4-0 victory counter West Ham United at the opening shows the fighting spirit of Jose Mourinho’s troops this season is very high.

Moreover the presence of Nemanja Matic purchased from Chelsea increasingly adds strength to the Red Devils. Matic is considered to provide a balance for United especially when building attacks.

In the future, the Serbian will further indulge United’s front row such as Romelu Lukaku, Anthony Martial or Marcus Rashford to score more goals.

That way, United are now considered a favorite Premier League champions and their chances to re-master the domestic competition will be more wide open.

“I saw Matic on many occasions during his stay at Stamford Bridge, and while he did not have a great season, he played a fundamental role in winning the title for Chelsea,” he wrote for BBC Sport.

“Not long after the euphoria of Premier League title celebrations subsided, then Matic moved to United to produce what can only be described as an outstanding debut show. West Ham was beaten when Matic gave Paul Pogba the freedom to roam, Henrikh Mkhitaryan with the freedom to break through the opponent’s defense and Juan Mata to do whatever he liked, “he explained.

“Bringing Matic has been a tremendous part of business by Manchester United and that’s why I’m bidding them for the title,” he said.

Matic purchased the Red Devils with a tag of 40 million pounds. He will travel at Old Trafford on a three-year contract. (Source: BBC)
