Manchester United midfielder Nemanja Matic says his success at former club Chelsea shows that he does not have anything to prove when they clash against them on Sunday.
Matic played for Chelsea in 2014 under former manager Jose Mourinho and won two league titles and a League Cup in three seasons.
The Serbian internationals was once again reunited with Mourinho at United in July and has played a significant role in their strong season.
“I feel when I played there, I showed them my quality. We won the title twice and also two cups, so I don’t have to prove to them anything. I just have to prove something to my new club,” Matic said.
”We know we must respect them,“ Matic added. ”They are a good team, they’re champions and it’s going to be a hard game for us, but we also have our own qualities.
“The Premier League is difficult… You lose two games and the other teams are there, so it’s important not to lose points, of course, but there’s a long way to go.”
