Our Manchester United fans here in the Transfer Tavern are starting to look back over the season and seeing which players have upped their game, in their most successful Premier League campaign in the post-Fergie era.
Since they last won the title, United have failed miserably in the Premier League while largely being in and around the Europa League spots. Jose Mourinho, to his credit, has turned the Red Devils into quite the force which has been on display against the top-six team recently, and if it wasn’t for Man City’s sparkling form this year, United would have no doubt run them close for the title.
Our regulars feel that this United team are maybe one or two players away in the summer from genuine title winners, however, this season has seen the rise of a couple of Mourinho’s signings that seem on top of their game under the Portuguese man in his second season.
With that being said, our barman and landlord sat down last night as they called last orders and made a list of players that have impressed this season, but this one topped the lot and certainly, Man United fans across the board wouldn’t disagree…
OUR VERDICT – Nemanja Matic
The Serbian has dazzled in his first season at Old Trafford, however much it was a surprise move up the M6. Indeed, this season, he hasn’t had much healthy competition for his centre midfield spot, and Matic has shown he can be one of the key components within the first team with some brilliant performances.
If this form continues, Matic could be the turning point in United’s bid to finally reclaim their Premier League trophy, which will please all associated with the club.Like what the TT have on offer? Sign up for more notifications!
