Nemanja Matic Set To Given New Position Against Spurs

Nemanja Matic Set To Given New Position Against Spurs

Nemanja Matic looks set to play his first match of the season tonight against Spurs - but the Manchester United midfielder looks set to start in central defence for the Red Devils.

United have struggled with their defensive options since the beginning of the campaign, with central defenders Victor Lindelof and Eric Bailly both having an absolutely torrid time against Brighton last weekend.

Chris Smalling was an unused sub during the 3-2 defeat on the south coast, whilst Phil Jones has been left in the stands.

That being said, Samuel Luckhurst of the Manchester Evening News seems to think it's Matic who'll deputise at the heart of defence this evening:

Having lost to Brighton, United are in need of a big win against Mauricio Pochettino's side as they try and keep pressure on their rivals.

What do you think of the idea of starting Matic at centre-back, particularly if other options are fit and available?
