Man Utd boss Solskjaer: Matic in career best form

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer believes Nemanja Matic is showing career best form.

Matic was selected to hold the midfield behind Paul Pogba and Bruno Fernandes, starting together for the first time, and the trio controlled the victory over Sheffield United which saw Anthony Martial net a hat-trick.

"Nemanja is playing some of his best football," Solskjaer said. "He's had a good pre-season for the first time in many, many years and today he was dictating the game and his experience is vital for us.

"I'm very, very happy that we're seeing the best of Nemanja and he'll be important for us and then of course it's down to performances and if Nemanja wants to stay but at the moment he's in great form."
