Chelsea's sale of Nemanja Matic to Manchester United surprises Frank Lampard

Despite that miss potentially denying United a chance at taking the Champions League winners the distance, Mournho was happy with his new No.9. "It is a horrendous sale".

Premier League winner with both Mourinho and Antonio Conte, Willian also had to explain the differences between the managers: "They are very different".

And finally, reports in Spain suggest Manchester City has made an enquiry about whether Barcelona midfielder Sergio Busquets would be available to buy this summer, according to Manchester Evening News.

But then again, none of that will go down in the record books.

A goal to remember then, but it on a difficult night. There were a handful of easily avoidable mistakes, including one horrendously mistimed run in behind the Madrid defence that killed off a United attack after the Belgian being flagged offside. Lukaku's United career is not off to a perfect start, but it is off to a scoring one. As you know the Premier League is the main target.

One of the few United players to emerge with credit, Matic's display belied the fact that he had played just 45 minutes of football over the summer.

Matic may have lack match fitness but repaid his manager with another authoritative display, following on from his first United appearance in Dublin last week. Still, Matic atoned by inadvertently assisting Lukaku after his own shot was parried by Navas.

"Conte likes to work the tactical and the physical part". Everyone has their way of working.

"He was what we wanted him to be, to move the ball in a simple way to give balance to the team to start building from the back and he's a player with great experience, many years at the highest level and good experience good stability". "Mourinho is a coach who likes more the ball practice, works the ball possession and makes short games", he added. And Conte, too, because he won everything at Juventus and already won the Premier League in his first year with Chelsea. Time is very much still on his side.
