Thierry Henry poses question about new Man United signing

Paul Scholes has praised Man Utd for the signing of Nemanja Matic

"Yes, for sure", the Italian said when asked if it will be hard to retain the title this season without making more signings.

"Petr had done such a lot for the club, Thibaut Courtois had come in and it would have been harsh to stop him moving to Arsenal when he was so settled in London, but this is different".

Antonio Conte admitted on Wednesday that the departure of Matic was a "great loss" to Chelsea, who will also begin their Premier League title defence without £40 million signing Bakayoko due to a knee injury picked up in the final weeks of last season at Monaco.

"There's responsibility on Bakayoko not just to bring the talents that he has - and he has many - but also the discipline to fit into the system". It comes with the habit of playing in that kind of situation, of playing with better players. It's a very tough league and he'll have to stand up to that. You've got to understand what the club is all about.

With Diego Costa having been very publicly frozen out by manager Antonio Conte, Chelsea broke their transfer record to sign 24-year-old Spain striker Morata.

"I heard whispers at the back end of last season that he wanted to go and even if the club can not come out and say too much about that, maybe there was an element of that in play here when this deal went through. I think we just have to accept it and move on".

United could hand Premier League debuts to all three of their new additions against West Ham on Sunday. "They've had an outflux, a lot of players have gone but majority were squad players and young players who probably won't affect the first XI that much.

It made you wonder why did Chelsea sell him?"

"I think he brings aggression to United's midfield, which is something they have been lacking".

"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".
