Tony Gale claims Nemanja Matic is the best midfielder in the league
Manchester United have been battling with Manchester City at the top of the table this term as their rivalry goes to another level with both clubs currently a step above the other sides in the league. However, one area in which Tony Gale believes United are definitely better than City is through midfielder Nemanja Matic. He told Sky Sports: “I’ll go for Matic because simply he’s made the biggest difference. Obviously, there are more creative central midfield players around and everybody will go to the flare ones. But in terms of the importance to Manchester United, he’s the one for me. And believe it or not, although he does give that defensive solidity to them in front of the back four, he can see a pass as well”.

Once I saw it was hitting, like, who it was hitting, which I didn’t mean…I apologise Sir Alex, really didn’t mean to do that”.

Following six wins and a draw, Mourinho’s men sit level on points with Manchester City at the top as they grow more confident with each passing week. He said: “In another league it could be said that a team that starts with seven wins and a draw would almost mean the title, but in England it doesn’t mean anything, not even that we will finish in the first four places”.
