Matic calls for reinforcements

Nemanja Matic hopes that Jose Mourinho will be allowed to strengthen the Manchester United squad with several new acquisitions this summer.

United finished second in the Premier League table this season behind runaway winners Manchester City before being beaten 1-0 by Chelsea in Saturday's FA Cup final.

Eden Hazard scored the only goal of the game from the penalty spot in the 22nd minute after being upended by Phil Jones and former Blues star Matic accepted afterwards that it had been an underwhelming campaign for Mourinho's team.

"I think with a few more good players in the squad we can fight for the title, of course, and I'm sure we will do it," said the Serbia international.

"I don't know what we did wrong [in the FA Cup final]. We had one mistake when we conceded the goal, but I think that we played good football for 90 minutes.

"I think that we deserved more but this is football, one mistake and sometimes you can lose the game and this is what has happened to us."

United are 500/1 to win the Premier League title in 2018/19, while Manchester City can be backed at 4/11, Chelsea at 66/1 and Liverpool at 5/2.
