Nemanja Matic is confident Manchester United will perform well in the Premier League despite their Super Cup setback against Real Madrid.

Jose Mourinho's side begin their domestic campaign against West Ham at Old Trafford on Sunday and Matic, who impressed on his competitive debut following his move from Chelsea, says United are in good shape to challenge for their "main target" in the Premier League.

And speaking in a recent interview with Sky Sports, the Italian boss described Matic's departure as "a great loss" for the club but one that he had to "accept".

"It's very important for us that our strikers score goals". "The importance for me about this player, who is a really good player, a top player, very important for our team, but sometimes you must accept this insane transfer market. But he is a great loss for us".

"Chelsea are weaker than last season - no Diego Costa, no Matic - and I'm concerned for them". Six teams are very strong and you must be prepared. "They allowed [Eden] Hazard, [Cesc] Fabregas and whoever else was playing that bit of freedom and I'm hoping he'll do that for United for [Paul] Pogba, [Anthony] Martial, [Jesse] Lingard and [Henrikh] Mkhitaryan". The transfer market is not finished. As a Chelsea fan you're always going to want more: 'Can we buy the best players?

Prior to his first "official" goal for United, Lukaku had already scored three times for the club during pre-season with strikes against Real Salt Lake, Manchester City and Valerenga.

Chelsea's marquee signing this summer was the club-record arrival of Morata from Real Madrid for an initial fee of £58 million.

"He needs to play regularly, he's a player I trust a lot". "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".

"I don't think the club wanted to let Diego Costa go necessarily, because you can't get Diego Costas on every street corner".
