Romelu Lukaku backed to succeed at Manchester United

New signings Victor Lindelof and Romelu Lukaku joined the Serbian midfielder in making their competitive debuts for Manchester United in their UEFA Super Cup defeat to Real.

United sealed a £40m deal for Matic last month, with the move not appearing to have been well received by Blues manager Antonio Conte, who has struggled to disguise his annoyance in a summer when Chelsea have failed to land some of his top transfer targets.

Nemanja Matic knows a thing or two about winning the Premier League and has already seen enough to be confident of a Manchester United title challenge this season.

"I think in the moments where they were moving more the ball, of course it was hard for us in the midfield".

Rory McIlroy and his wonderful cart-path par
He played basketball and football as a kid, but quickly learned his best chances were in a sport where size didn't matter as much. A nice 14-15 foot for par steadied me and on seventh two good shots to get to around 25 feet and two-putted for par.

Kuwait says most of Gulf oil spill cleaned up
Authorities said yesterday that beaches would be cleaned once power and water plants are secured and the spill is under control. The joint operations center in the Saudi border town of Khafji said facilities there have not been affected by the spill.

Another former United forward, Wayne Rooney, will make his first Premier League start since rejoining boyhood club Everton when they host Stoke City at Goodison Park on Saturday.

"But I was not thinking of it because I always thought I never like to go to players that I think are an impossible mission, and I felt there was no chance".

"Matic was a big player for Chelsea last season and even though they have sign players to replace him, he is going to be missed and possibly just as significantly, he strengthens Manchester United, there is no doubt about that". "Not just for his qualities but also for my relationship with him, the way I know him, the way he knows me".

Matic was part of Jose Mourinho's side that won the Premier League crown and the EFL Cup in the 2014-15 season following his £21m switch from Benfica. He doesn't need time to adapt, he's not a young guy who came from another country, he's not somebody that needs to learn the Premier League. He's one of these players that gives me what I like in players, which is consistency.
