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

Jose Mourinho loves the word special - in fact, it defined his first spell in England, and now he's used the word again, when he spoke about landing his star man, Nemanja Matic, from his former club Chelsea.

Not only has the Serbian contributed defensively, but his attacking runs have gave United another dimension in midfield, with one moment in particular leaving Old Trafford "oohing and aahing".

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.

Although it is still the beginning of the season, Mourinho's side has had a completely different sense of confidence with Matic in their ranks.

Matic robbed West Ham of possession, allowing the ball to break to Marcus Rashford, but rather than rest on his laurels his followed the play, overlapping to the left of Rashford to create more space for his new team-mate.

The firm now has a $25.00 target price on the basic materials company's stock, up from their previous target price of $24.00. World Asset Management Inc boosted its position in shares of AK Steel Holding Corporation by 1.4% in the first quarter.


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

"He's a player of, I think, now 29 last week - 29 years old, with five years or so in the Premier League, lots of experience".

Alan Pardew and Graeme Souness also weighed in on the debate and it's fair to say that all three members of the Sky Sports panel were in unanimous bemusement with regard to the midfielder's summer move.

Thoughts on Matic's performance?
