Manchester United fans delighted with Matteo Darmian debut

Matteo Darmian enjoyed a hugely impressive Premier League debut during Manchester United’s opening day victory over Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday.

The Italian was arguably Man United’s best player on the day and seemed comfortable despite it being his first competitive appearance in English football.

Darmian started at right-back behind Juan Mata and made a big impact at both ends of the field. The 25-year-old gave United an extra attacking option going forward and managed to hold off a number of Spurs’ attacks.

United fans and pundits were delighted with Darmian’s first Premier League display of the season:

Darmian really was the bright spark in an otherwise poor performance from United against Spurs. The former Torino man proved his worth and gave the club’s supporters a lot to look forward to in the season ahead.

Ever since Gary Neville left, United haven’t had a dependable, consistent right-back they can rely on. Rafael was superb for one season but injuries stopped him from maintaining that sort of level but in Darmian we could finally have turned a corner.
