Great start for new Man Utd duo, will it last for the rest of the season

DATE: 14.08.2016 - SOCCERVOICE - NEWS - SEASON 2016-17

Romelu Lukaku and Nemanja Matic started the season as Jose Mourinho would have hoped for, can this continue for the rest of the season
 

Mourinho arrived at Man Utd in front of last season with work to do, when you look at it from a squad point of view. He managed to get two trophies in the cupboard, winning the Europa League and the EFL Cup.

People describe it as the "mini" cups of Europe and England, but again, getting a place in the Champions League cannot be described as "little", that is "huge". Premier League never really became a great one last season, but it looks a lot better now.

Eric Bailly is one year more experienced, Nemanja Matic and Romelu Lukaku are the perfect combination to add to a team, and Paul Pogba can this season finally be seen as a player stamped "world class".

The fact that Wayne Rooney is gone, is of course sad in a way, but it frees up a lot of space. Zlatan can be back but hardly able to play the role he did last season. Zlatan will be less important than De Gea, Bailly, Matic, Lukaku and Rashford.

There are talks about one more addition and the names Gareth Bale and Ivan Pericic are often rumoured to be on their way. Jose Mourinho will definately not add both players, and with the form Marcus Rashford showed in the opening game, operating wide, might have given Mourinho other ideas.

Matic, is a former Premier League winner. There are still a few more that knows how to win the title. Smalling, Jones, Carrick, De Gea and Valencia are still important players, with Jesse Lingard also present back in 2012-13.

Manchester City looked strong, so did Arsenal and Everton in the season openers, but Lukaku and Matic showed some quality spreading confidence around and really setting this Man Utd team on fire.
