Who’s impressed

It will be important for Lukaku to settle in quickly and lead the line. He could be a key player with his movement off the ball so uniteds midfield can run through. 

Matic is the buy of the season and will solidify the united midfield. Allowing Pogba to play more offensively. 

Lindelof looks up for the Real Madrid game on Tuesday. And he performs tonight then everyone will forget about his poor pre-season.
