Matteo Darmian has been nothing short of superb for Manchester United so far since joining from Torino.
On the pre-season tour, Darmian was one of United’s stand-out players and he continued that run of good form into the Tottenham Hotspur game where he put in a man of the match performance.
His play on the right-flank was reminiscent of Gary Neville in his pomp. In defence, Darmian kept his position excellently but it was his drive and desire to attack wherever possible, without neglecting his defensive duties, which made it such an impressive debut.
United fans hoped Darmian would settle down well at the club but few would have expected it to have happened so quickly from the classy defender.

Already, Darmian looks like he has been a United player for a few years. He’s got bundles of confidence and that makes such a huge difference, especially for a full-back who has so much ground to cover all game.
Next up for Darmian and United is Aston Villa away on Friday night and that will be the first time that United’s new signings have experienced the away crowd. That’ll be an experience for them all.
