Chelsea, Thanks For Nemanja Matic, Wonderful Gesture - Former Manchester United Star

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte must be watching at home with his head in his hands.

Manchester United fans were full of praise for what was a sublime performance by from Nemanja Matic during their side's 4-0 win over West Ham United in the Premier League.

So far, so good for Jose Mourinho's side.

Matic, snapped up from Chelsea for £40m, was in superb form in the middle of the park as the Red Devils kicked off their Premier League campaign with a swashbuckling 4-0 win against West Ham at Old Trafford.

And as the United squad flocked to Lukaku at the corner flag, Mata made a point - quite literally - of singling out Matic's role in the goal. Both Romelu Lukaku and Nemanja Matic have years and years of Premier League experience, it is easy for them compared to Victor Lindelof who needs time.

I want you to know that you are my hero as well and, I just saw the video of you and I don't want you to feel like that. O'Connor is in a hospital as of now, but currently does not appear to be depressed and denied that she is suicidal.

The Serbian has won every aerial duel during the opening 45 minutes as well as every dribble.

Matic was Manchester United's best player in an otherwise disappointing 2-1 loss to La Liga champions Real Madrid in the Uefa Super Cup on Tuesday night. Purposeful, powerful and a team with intent, Graeme Souness commented on Sky Sports.

Football host Jake Humphrey was impressed with Matic's performance, tweeting "what were Chelsea thinking".

And Neville ribbed Chelsea over agreeing to sell the experienced midfielder to Manchester United.

"When I joined Manchester United a year ago, I thought immediately that we needed a kind of Matic", he said ahead of Sunday's home match against West Ham.
