Nemanja Matić is a "terrific player" enthuses Manchester United captain Michael Carrick

Former Manchester United manager, David Moyes, is not convinced Paul Pogba can make the difference for the Red Devils in big games.

Moyes told ESPN FC: 'Well, bringing Marouane Fellaini was part of what I hoped he would come to United and play in different games.

'We want to do better in the Premier League and now we are back in the Champions League and we want to do well in that competition.

However, he admits that in Lukaku they have got someone who can score goals regularly for them.

His pacey displays across the front three continued in pre-season, and he was one of United's star performers on tour - bagging three goals in seven outings.

Manchester United will kickoff their 2017/18 Premier League campaign at home against West Ham on Sunday, August 13, 2017.

But the Belgium worldwide has gone on to establish himself as a key cog under both Louis van Gaal and Jose Mourinho, playing 28 league games last season.

"He was never someone who was going to play in all the games at United". "But they are very experienced and they also had some chances to score another because at the end we tried to go with everything to score and they had some counter-attacks".

"He's settled in the team like he was there for the whole of pre-season. But I am happy for him that he scored a goal after that and I'm sure that he will continue to score goals and that he will score many this season".

Moyes, who managed United for under a year before his Old Trafford sacking in April 2014, does not believe Pogba can make a key difference in the biggest matches. Manchester United are 2/7 for a top four finish this season at Sky Bet, and are 7/2 to win the title.

"We [Lukaku and Pogba] talked about it last season, wondering if one day we would play together and it's happened this season so I'm very happy".

It shows that they're in business, they want to challenge the top teams and even if they get a good year out of Wayne, I think it's a good move to get Wayne back and I do think Wayne will score goals. "And I do think he's a good player, but I'm not quite sure if he'll make the difference in key games".
