'We have him and we are very happy' - Mourinho on Matic

  • Alvaro Morata Chelsea Burnley Premier League

For Manchester United, it is hard to see how their first game of the new season could have gone much better other than perhaps another goal or two to polish up their superiority. Having won the Community Shield, League Cup and Europa League last season, Jose Mourinho is ready to go for more this season, to attempt a significant improvement upon last year's sixth place finish.

Mourinho's track record of winning league titles across Europe in his second season at the club is very striking.

Summer signings, Victor Lindelof, Romelu Lukaku and Nemanja Matic are in line to make their Premier League debut for the Red Devils.

The Red Devils enjoyed most of the possession in the opening exchanges, while the likes of Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Lukaku had half chances.

Unlike most holding midfielders, Matic doesn't just play with his back to defenders. "Better without the ball and with the ball".

One needs to credit Mourinho, who signed Nemanja Matic from Chelsea. When you play for Manchester United everybody has a job to do and mine is to score goals for the team. It seems that both the teams are in the good form. Can the Hammers secure another Premier League point at Old Trafford? And that will terrify rivals.

Of course, a bad performance at Old Trafford against United can be pushed aside as long as the team in question can respond with a win.

It was an all round positive afternoon for Mourinho and his United side. The only thing we know, of course with Chelsea money, I brought him to Stamford Bridge because I thought he was a player with special qualities.

It will be interesting to see how much of an impact Romelu Lukaku will have an impact on Manchester United. "I'm happy with the effort the club did and I'm happy they managed to do 75 percent of the work before the Premier League starts".

Winston Reid's partner at centerback to start the season will be Angelo Ogbonna instead of Jose Fonte, with Arthur Masuaku getting the matchday one selection at left back ahead of Aaron Cresswell.
