‘Our main man, what a player,’ Man United fans delighted with midfielder after Brighton display

Nemanja Matic MUFC

Manchester United supporters were delighted with the impact of Nemanja Matic, who managed to find the scoresheet for the second time in the month. The Serbia international put in a real shift at the heart of the United midfield, and he contributed a goal and assist during the 2-0 FA Cup quarter-final win over Brighton on Saturday.

Matic, 29, has been one of United most-consistent performers this season, but of late, he has also been contributing towards the club’s scoresheet with valuable goals including a late winner against Palace. Following the Sevilla defeat, the team had to come up with a strong showing against Brighton, and though they struggled to create many clear-cut chances, they managed to pull through with a 2-0 triumph.

United opened the scoring after a delightful cross from Matic which Lukaku dually converted into a goal. After the break, the match was more evenly contested with Brighton having a real-go at the hosts, but the game was eventually put to bed by Matic himself, who scored with a header at the far-post following a splendid free-kick from Ashley Young.




Matic has been Mourinho’s go-to man in the centre of the park this term, and this has been visualised by him being ever-present through the club’s Premier League campaign. The Serbian has had a couple of difficult games in the United shirt, but his response thereafter has been brilliant regardless of the constant swapping of midfield partners alongside him.
