Mkhitaryan: Lindelof Will Shine For United

Paul Pogba loves playing with the insurance of having Nemanja Matic behind him in the Manchester United midfield. I want to mention as well the other two new signings, Lindelof and Lukaku.

Lukaku joined Manchester United in a £75m deal from Everton last month and looks like he will not need much time to adapt to life under Jose Mourinho at his new club. He tries to recover all the balls.

Mkhitaryan played his part in West Ham's 4-0 demolition in the Premier League and talked about his preferences as a player in Mourinho's team.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan has backed Manchester United team-mate Victor Lindelof to come good and prove his worth at Old Trafford.

However, Henry, who was seriously impressed with United's attack told Sky Sports after the game "he (Lukaku) was close to a hat-trick, he scored goals we expected him to score, and there are bits he can work on".

"I am happy for him - not only that he scored goals - but his unbelievable all-round game as well", Matic said.

United won the League Cup and Europa League last season, and are now hoping to challenge for the Premier League again this term after three underwhelming campaigns.

However, it was Matic who stole the show as he was voted United's Man of the Match, and, after the game, he admitted it was his team-mates' warm welcome that helped him to settle in so quickly.

"It was great [to play at Old Trafford], when you wear that [United] shirt you feel some kind of pressure because this is a big club, but that's why we are here".

Matić, also formerly of Benfica, said his teammates "helped him" and hoped he had "give them something back" in the rout of Slaven Bilić's side.

"We are going to try to do our best to bring the club to the level it was at before". He played because (Phil) Jones and (Eric) Bailly were both suspended.

"In 2004 I bought a phenomenal central defender to England, Ricardo Carvalho". But he struggled and it was hard for him to come and adapt in the beginning.
