Loads of Man United fans make same Nemanja Matic decision vs Sheffield United

Manchester United fans largely agree that Nemanja Matic should be handed a start in Wednesday’s crucial fixture against Sheffield United at Old Trafford. 

Matic had to settle for a place on the bench as the Reds restarted their Premier League campaign with a 1-1 draw against a reserved Tottenham side on Friday.

The Serbian midfielder was introduced in the final 15 minutes and brought a calming influence to proceedings, allowing United a stable platform to attack from.

Much has been spoken about midfield partnership between Bruno Fernandes and Paul Pogba, and Solskjaer almost certainly has to start the pair on Wednesday evening.

Pogba changed the game when he came on, adding new direction and an unpredictability to United’s labouring attack as they searched for a winner in the closing stages.

But to allow their two most creative midfielders the freedom to thrive, they need a player that protects the back four in defensive midfield and Matic is adept in this role.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer may still choose to remain with either Fred or Scott McTominay in a double midfield pivot, but Matic offers a dominant and imposing option that also uses his intelligence and accuracy in possession to initiate attacks.
