Lukaku scores on Man United debut

Lukaku double fires Man United football club to winning start

Jose Mourinho's side were in sublime form as they defeated the Hammers 4-0 at Old Trafford.

Last season was somewhat saved for Manchester United when they qualified for the Champions League by winning the Europa League, but there will be higher expectations this time around with the club spending over £100 million on transfer fees already.

Andre Ayew nearly got the equalizer for West Ham United before the end of the first half when Hernandez supplied a great pass, but the Ghanaian star could not go past David De Gea.

United and Lukaku's second followed minutes later and was a reminder of the striker's power rather than pace.

In the meantime, Nemanja Matic makes his debut and starts in the midfield for Manchester United alongside Paul Pogba.

But Brussels negotiators have insisted there are three issues to be sorted before a new relationship can be discussed. The two sides will be looking for a solution to those issues at the next round of talks due at the end of this month.

And he then doubled United's lead seven minutes after the restart, heading Henrikh Mkhitaryan's free kick into the bottom corner.

Mata was through again shortly after following a lovely looped pass over the top by Pogba, but the Spaniard's square pass for Lukaku at the far post was cut out.

Lukaku scored on his competitive debut for United in Tuesday's 2-1 UEFA Super Cup defeat to Madrid in Skopje and was named in Mourinho's starting line-up alongside Matic to make his Premier League bow against Slaven Bilic's side. Marcus Rashford, Paul Pogba, Antonio Valencia and Eric Bailly all start. Lukaku's finish was emphatic, rebounding in off one of the uprights, and he rightly took the attention as a goal-scoring debutant, but Rashford's quick, direct running made it. However, the Red Devils will have to move forward and will have to depend on the likes of Paul Pogba, Romelu Lukaku, Mkhitaryan and others to fetch them points. Then, after being central to much of United's pretty play, Pogba made a decision to go it alone, carrying the ball forward unchallenged before angling a shot past Hart.

"The Premier League is what you all know", Mourinho said on Friday. There have been plenty of reasons for United's league struggles; this year, however, everyone at the club will at least expect them to challenge for the title for the first time since Sir Alex Ferguson retired.
