Nemanja Matic lead United in touches (103), pass accuracy (94.9%), passes completed (93) and recoveries (8).
What we saw today was definitive proof of why Matic has so much left to offer to this young team. The way he was dropping in as the third CB in transition and then stepping up, it was majestic. He was why Sheffield looked so ragged and ineffectual.
Would have been my 2nd choice Man of the Match after Martial compliment Pogba n Bruno well
We know the players that have been on fire in that half, but I tell you what, Matic has been superb. Not a foot wrong!
Thoughts on 3-0 win:
- Martial superb, first player to score 3 for us in the PL in 7 years
- Pogba & Bruno linkup is beautiful
- Matic flawless
- Pogba playing deep works very well
- Greenwood has to start Saturday
- Rashford with 2 big assists
- 13 games unbeaten
- Clean sheet
Martial is lazy, martial is lazy. Laziness has scored hattrick this afternoon. Why won't he be lazy, imagine playing in front of lingard. Even i would become stagnant. Then introduced to trio of matic, pogba and bruno. That's a green light for "break our hattrick curse "
OGS n AF
I am actually one of them, cause the guy slow 😭😭. Against an attacking team Matic will be a liability sha
Matic contribution goes unnoticed. His shielding really helps Pogba & Bruno to attack. Immense player
Manchester United made football so easy tonight.
Pogba and Bruno partnership so superb.
Martial and Rashford partnership so nifty.
Matic was so sweet in that middle.
The back four B-L-M-S so solid
More of this win to the Red devil.
Gather here united lets follow each other✌
Martial will get the plaudits and rightfully so, but Matic was unbelievable today breaking up play. Gives so much balance to the midfield
Quality performance my friend, now 2 points behind Chelsea. Respect to Matic for holding the midfield and allowing Pogba & Bruno to run the show. Ole is gettinh the balance of the team right game by game.
Matic plays brilliantly most this season I agree but I mean before January when had too many touches on the ball etc. He was sooo garbage.....so how did he proved everyone wrong ?? Dosent make sense......
Only downside about this Matic performance is having to suffer another Thread from Rick
Always rated Nemanja Matic even when he had that rough phase at United.
Absolute masterclass from him today. Experience matters and matters most when you are a midfielder.
This line-up should not change. Well done @ManUtd #MUFC
Credit to Ole 🤝
Matic deserves a 9. Bossed the midfield to allow Pogba and Bruno to play their game
So when are we going to address the fact that we can actually give Leicester 60m for Ndidi as Matic replacement now they have acquired William Carvahlo.
Fred & Scott CAN'T do what Matic did today, Matic brought the balance. Scott is too attacking minded, Fred isn't strong enough.
They can depending on the games we are playing
In big games/bogey teams where we need that solidity Matic plays
Against the small teams where we need more energy in midfield Fred/Scott
