Nemanja Matic put in a Man of the Match performance on his debut against West Ham last weekend. One of the obvious highlights of his display was seeing the benefits to Paul Pogba’s game, who also finished the 90 minutes with a goal.

Matic has acknowledged that the two play well together and that they are prepared to fight for each other on the pitch.

I think we play together very well. We help each other. I have to say he played good in attack and also helped a lot when we were defending. He always played next to me. We are there on the pitch to fight for each other. We will continue like this and I’m happy to have him in the team.

Matic also experienced playing for the fans at Old Trafford for the first time but had been aware of how well we supported the team from his Chelsea days.

I think Manchester United fans are amazing. I saw Old Trafford and know that they really love the club and support us during 90 minutes. I think away, they’re even better. When I played against Manchester, I could feel they are good and always support so I’m looking forward to that game.
