Nemanja Matic’s goal is still the difference between Manchester United and Huddersfield at half time. The two sides are slugging it out in the premier league fixture corresponding to match day 18 at Old Trafford.
The match which is also their new manager, Ole Gunnar Solskaer, first in charge at the Theatre of Dreams has seen the Red Devils bossed possession with some intricate passing.
The Serbian International displayed great awareness to pounce on a loose ball inside the visitor’s area after Jesse Lingard’s corner kick was not properly cleared.
28′ Min | N.Matic | GOAL 1-0 United !! Lingard’s delivery towards the near post is flicked on by Lindelof but prevented from crossing the line, though the ball fell into the path of Matic and he tucked home easily for his 1st Goal of the season. #MUFC #MUNHUD pic.twitter.com/EZkI0XeqmZ

What they are saying:
I’m seeing Matic not lose his man and I’m rubbing my eyes. This man is even playing first time passes

This collective press is actually helping Matic out cause in that dinosaurs system the only one allowed to press a bit was Matic but he was too slow.
