Nemanja Matic has played down concerns over unity in the Manchester United squad as they continue to try and recover from a slow start to the season.

The Red Devils made an inconsistent start to the 2018-19 campaign and so find themselves trailing leaders Manchester City by nine points after 11 games.

Results have been more positive over recent weeks although they are yet to turn in a performance over a full 90 minutes.

Their most recent outing against Bournemouth was another example as they fell behind early on and required a late winner from Marcus Rashford to claim all three points at the Vitality Stadium.

United will be seriously tested again this week, with a trip to Juventus on Wednesday before they travel to Manchester City on Sunday.

Matic has rejected claims of a rift in the camp and insists they are working together to address the current situation. “We are all united,” Matic said.

“When we win we are all together and when we lose we are all together. “It’s not true what the media are writing. We are working hard and we will continue like this.

“The Manchester United name obligates us to be professionals and try to turn the situation as soon as possible and this is exactly what we are doing.”

United can be backed at 6.00 to win in Italy on Wednesday, while the draw is available at 3.80. Juventus are priced at 1.60 to come out on top.
