Nemanja Matic

Yup he is realy poor atm. Or better say far from his best.

Agreed, and he has been for a long time, stretching back most, if not all, of the way to Christmas. A starting quality CM, able to give the side more balance would undoubtedly aid Nemanja's game. If we can find one before the window closes then that would be great but, if not, Matic will have to muddle on without the help. There is no one else.

His real problem is everyone pressures his left-foot which forces him to go to his right side, but he has a terrible right foot which he never uses. That's why he's been passing back under any small pressure. Compared to when people didnt know... He needs to find a way to use his right foot to relieve some pressure off himself, because he can still dribble out of pressure but he can't do it when you cover his left side.

He hasn't been at his best for a while, but a good partner alongside him would improve his level of performance.

Бранислав Ивановић (Ivanovic)

Немања Матић (Matic)

While I like the changes, I think these two players are a step too far. While the others are informative, these ones are not. All I see is jibberish because you're using the Serbian Cyrillic alphabet. Same for others who don't know the Serbian Cyrillic alphabet.

no he is not. against city he was one of our best players. its cesc thats making him look bad.

any person trying to hold the mid alone will look poor. makelele had essien/ballack and lamps along with whom who were all brilliant in every aspect of the game. cesc is so poor defensively that its shocking...

Is it really Matic who has been poor, or the fact he's doing two midfielders' defensive duties at the minute, as Cesc is that badly out of form? I'm inclined to think it is a combination of the both. Sure, he was certainly better in the first half of last season, but I believe his performances only truly "declined" because there was more pressure on him. Cesc has been quite lacklustre for quite some time and has started this season incredibly poorly. I have some sympathy with Matic and certainly think both he and the team would benefit from a transition to a midfield partnership of himself and Mikel.

Not only has it made him look weaker defensively, but he's also less ambitious going forward.

His attacking qualities are under rated and we have reigned them in ever since Cesc has joined to make up for his defensive weakness, it was okay when Cesc was assisting and creating chances at will, but now not so much.

Although Mikel Matic isn't the answer, its far too defensive.

I thought there was games last season where Cesc was better than Matic and so far this season I'd say the same. Its easy to say Cesc has let Matic down but I really think Matic has let Matic down, his positioning and reactions at times are like mind blowingly awful. He hasn't quite been the same since Christian Eriksen gave him the run about in December or January whenever it was. He just looks disinterested in some games.

Another woeful performance from him and no Fabregas to blame this time. For some reason he keeps wandering to wide areas and making it incredibly easy for teams to play through the lines. You won't believe the amount of space Naismith was afforded for the opener today. He's a B2B midfielder masquerading as a DM.
