What are fans saying about Matic's Burnley display?
Paul Pogba was named Man of the Match after United's 1-0 win over Burnley, but there was also oodles of praise across social media for his midfield partner, Nemanja Matic.
Matic: Our position isn't luckVideo
“A great asset that bridges the defence and midfield perfectly.”
“I think he was key. Him dropping back and helping with passing at the back as well as releasing AWB and Luke Shaw to go forward was key for the three points. Him, Bailly and Pogba were top performers for me. And good from Ole and the management to see the contribution he can have. His height was also a key factor.”
“Great. I don't think he is replaceable. So calm with the ball. Passing is of another class.”
“Bailly, Pogba and mathematic Matic were extraordinarily fabulous.”
“He was brilliant, he'd controlled the middle of the park well, and was fantastic driving forward.”
“Impressive. You don't have to run everywhere like a headless chicken. Use your brains, position yourself well on the field to adapt with pacy players, accurate passes, protect the defence – those are the winning points of this guy.”
“Great asset to the team. I love it when he's on the ball, he cools down the tempo as though nothing was attacking us... Great personality.”

“Matic, for me, was man of the match. He oozed calm and displayed so much experience.”
“When we play against teams that hold and drop deep Matic is the main man! When we play against attacking teams Fred and Scott are the people to use! All in all he was sensational.”
“He was solid in ball recovery, released the ball quick, textbook defending. He was also good in aerial duels and played some lovely through balls.”
