Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink sends message to Man United fans about Chelsea signing

In contrast, United were unbeaten in all 10 league games that Pogba started alongside Michael Carrick - the first of which being that win at Swansea.

Manchester United's signing of Nemanja Matic has been hailed as a "masterstroke" by former club captain Bryan Robson.

Though Herrera had a magnificent season past year, one of the reasons he was asked to step up so often was that United had deficiencies in so many areas. "The plan is to have a good squad, not just a good team", Mourinho told reporters when asked directly about Martial at the start of the month.

It remains a mystery to many inside the United dressing room why Chelsea chose to let Matic go - although they have all been quick to add that they are happy to have him.

'Against West Ham, Matic was starting behind and I could worry more about attacking.

"As a squad, we haven't really talked about specific aims for the season too much so far, but the goal is to win as many titles as possible", he said. "When I finished, I always felt like I'd missed something at Manchester United because I wasn't a first-team player. I feel good playing that way".

"I came here to win the Premier League and to challenge myself as well".

A representative insists the Justice League star will "continue to be Batman as long as the studio will have him". So while we shouldn't believe what he has to say, there is evidence that suggests there may be some truth to it.

The Reds legend, who is now a youth coach at the club, feels that a player like Matic would allow Liverpool's midfielders to bomb up the pitch without worrying about protecting the backline. Now I'm happy to be back. What matters is winning the Premier League. When you know the team more, you know how to play alongside them.

His performance was one of calm authority and the Serbian looked like the physical presence in midfield many United fans hoped Marouane Fellaini would be when he arrived four years ago. 'I want to perform well, but it is about what the team does.

"[We need] options because we have important players injured for a long time".

The Super Sunday panel all agreed that Chelsea have made a huge mistake selling Nemanja Matic to rivals Manchester United.

So Chelsea could not have been surprised by Mourinho's continuing admiration for the midfielder.

He has won the domestic title in his second season in each of his last five managerial positions - at Porto, Chelsea twice, Inter Milan and Real Madrid.
