"The fact that we won the match was the most important thing". We have reasons to be optimistic.

Which are the English Premier League matches that will be telecast on TV?

"It just means we played well and confidence levels will be high and now our challenge is to keep these confidence levels", added the former Chelsea and Real Madrid boss, who is starting his second season at Old Trafford. Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial should bring unpredictability to this Man United side, something they lacked in recent years.

With new striker Romelu Lukaku scoring twice and another close-season signing, midfielder Nemanja Matic, making a dominating debut, the win appeared to give credence to United's placing with many bookmakers as second favourites, behind neighbours Manchester City.

Early in the game, Neville tweeted: "Matic started unbelievable".

Manchester United could go ahead with the 4-3-3 formation this season.

"[It] depends on what was happening behind [closed] doors", he said.

"The only thing I know is that I brought him to Stamford Bridge because I thought he was a player with special qualities and since I left I always thought he could be a ideal player for us".

"So we have him, and we are very happy with that".

"It was a very bad result for us". We are much stronger as a team.

United were reliant on Swedish striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who scored 17 league goals - and 28 all told - before a cruciate knee ligament cut short his season in April.

His performance led Sky Sports pundit Gary Neville to describe Chelsea's decision to sell him to United as "strange" and came after Antonio Conte had described him as a "great loss". "I want to play West Ham on Sunday, a hard match".

Jose Mourinho says that Chelsea sanctioning the sale of Nemanja Matic suggests something unusual has taken place behind the scenes at Stamford Bridge.

"It's about confidence. In the last 20 minutes if they score it's 2-1 and the game is open, you feel the pressure and it would be entertaining but the reality is in the last part of the game, instead of being boring and controlling the game we scored a third goal". They have pace and quality but we didn't want to get exposed in one against one situations.
