Nemanja Matic is confident that Manchester United can do "good things" this season following Sunday's winning start to the Premier League.

Nemanja Matic has claimed that he is feeling optimistic about Manchester United's season following their Premier League opening-day win.

The Serbian midfielder reunited with manager Jose Mourinho at Old Trafford after joining from Chelsea earlier this summer in a reported £40m deal.

The 29-year-old put in a man-of-the-match display on Sunday as the club earned a 4-0 victory over West Ham United, with debutant Romelu Lukaku scoring twice.

After the game, Matic told MUTV: "Thanks to the guys, they have accepted me from my first day and I feel their support. Thanks to them, I feel very comfortable and I feel like I will be here a long time.

"They have helped me, and I am happy if I give them something back, and that I helped us to win. We played good football, and I think our supporters enjoyed it as well. It's good to start well with three points, the season is long but we have to collect a lot of points and we've had a good start.

"It was great [to play at Old Trafford], when you wear that shirt you feel some kind of pressure because this is a big club, but that's why we are here. We know that it's a big responsibility to play for Manchester United and I'm happy that we have started well and that I hope we continue like this - I'm sure this group can do good things."

United's next league game is away against Swansea City this Saturday.
