Match Preview Harry Maguire Manchester United Chelsea Premier League 2019Though naysayers questioned their credentials to challenge for the top four this year, Manchester United delivered an emphatic response on the opening weekend of the new Premier League season when they hammered rivals Chelsea at Old Trafford.Despite overseeing a mostly unblemished record in his first pre-season in charge, questions over Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s ability to produce had grown over the summer. But the Norwegian and his team delivered across the board.While the ultimate scoreline arguably reflected badly on Chelsea, it was a superb offensive performance from the Red Devils, with Marcus Rashford and Paul Pogba shining in attack, while new defenders Harry Maguire and Aaron Wan-Bissaka impressed at the back.The latter was in an effusive mood when talking up the result over Frank Lampard’s side, stating: “It was a great result to beat Chelsea and I couldn’t have been much happier with how it went.”Eyes have also been on Wan-Bissaka’s defensive partner, Maguire, since becoming the world’s most expensive defender following his arrival from Leicester, with pundits quick to draw comparisons with Liverpool’s lynchpin Virgil van Dijk.However, one man who struggles to understand the hefty price tag afforded the England international is Wolvers striker Diogo Jota, who has stoked up the fires of competition ahead of United’s visit to Molineux on Monday.“It (the £80m fee) is hard to explain,” the Portuguese forward said. “The market is unreal now in my opinion.”But it’s nothing to do with me, it is to do with the clubs and it is the moment we are living in. We just have to respect that amount.“I think Harry Maguire has a lot of quality but I know the players that we have in our team and I trust them.”Wolves, who are in the Europa League this season, are looking to crack the top six after almost edging out United last year, though the Red Devils will be keen to reassert themselves as genuine contenders at the top end of the table too.Speculation continues to swirl over whether there will be any more departures from Old Trafford, too, with Romelu Lukaku having joined Inter and Alexis Sanchez tipped to follow him out of the door.Paul Pogba’s future remains even more unclear as well, with the Frenchman having professed a desire to leave, but otherwise delivering brilliant performances during pre-season and against Chelsea.
