Top of the league
Manchester United fans were feeling good going into the start of the season, and despite Jose Mourinho saying ideally he would like one more player to add to the squad, the side were worthy of their 4-0 win and their place at the top of the table.
The club struggled to win games like ones against West Ham last season, and saw far too many 1-1 draws at Old Trafford costing them a place in the top four, yet they were clinical this time out, and looked tall, imposing and not a side many people would want to play – and Paul Pogba also scored which should at least satisfy some of his critics.
Chelsea fans were of course fairly annoyed – and were not happy about the fact that they sold Matic to Manchester United, but it was the team as a whole who were top draw, with Marcus Rashford also shining and when Anthony Martial came on, the winger scoring and doing enough to keep fans calling for his inclusion to boot.
