Mourinho stunned Chelsea allowed Matic to make Man Utd move

Jose Mourinho's side begin their domestic campaign against West Ham at Old Trafford on Sunday and Matic, who impressed on his competitive debut following his move from Chelsea, says United are in good shape to challenge for their "main target" in the Premier League.

The Brazil global thrived under the United boss and was named Chelsea's Player of the Year during Mourinho's final season at Stamford Bridge.

It was certainly a position that Manchester United as a team needed to strengthen, and they've gone and done it with Matic'.

Yet Matic, whose parried shot created the opportunity for Lukaku to find the net, has no worries about his new colleague, citing the confidence boost that came with the goal.

The United manager knows him well, the pair having worked together at Chelsea in a spell that brought the 2014-15 Premier League title to Stamford Bridge.

Speaking on BT Sport, Scholes said: "I really like the Matic signing".

"He likes me a lot and I like him a lot as a coach and as a person". Maybe now Pogba will have more freedom to get forward and people will expect to see goals and assists from him on a regular basis now in the big games.

He said: "I think he's one of these players where there are no question marks in front". He gives me something I really like which is consistency. He has put his trust in me and in my work, and I was very grateful to him.

"Only last week he was 29, with five years in the Premier League and lots of experience".

"He is a fantastic signing".

"We have had a better pre-season than previous year and we have the confidence levels of a team that has won a European competition and returned to the Champions League".

He added: "I dream of winning more titles with Chelsea, win a Champions League and Fifa Club World Cup with Chelsea and be one of the best players in the world, as well as win titles with the Selecao (Brazil) and a World Cup".
