Nemanja Matic has reiterated that Manchester United are title challengers after they edged past Tottenham at Old Trafford.
The Serbian midfielder was named Sky Sports’ Man of the Match in a game where he helped shut down Spurs before Anthony Martial sprung from the bench to grab a late winner for the hosts.
“This is one of the best teams in the league,” Matic said of Spurs.
Thankfully we managed to score a goal to win this important game. It was a great game and the most important is that we won it.
“They had more of the ball in the first half but I think we had more chances, more clear chances than them. They play great football but the most important is the result at the end.
Martial, who netted the winner after Eric Dier failed to read Romelu Lukaku’s flick-on, was delighted to have come off the bench to score the deciding goal.
“We lost the last game so it’s important for us to win and I’m happy to score.
“The manager told me to find the space and I know Lukaku is good with his head so I just ran.
“I don’t want to be on the bench but Rashford plays well too.”
