Mourinho says Manchester United still in the market for a winger

"So we stayed to watch it and the next minute Jose was walking towards us - I didn't know what he was going to do and then he stretched out to give the medal to him". The Belgium star dispatched his first via the inside of the post on the end of Marcus Rashford's fine throughball and headed home a Henrikh Mkhitaryan free-kick for United's second. The difference between Lukaku and Matic is that they have years and years [of experience in] the Premier League.

Here we take a look at how Twitter reacted to United's "statement made" kind of a win.

Ibrahimovic has been sidelined since April after sustaining an ACL injury against Celta Vigo for Manchester United, which is effectively the only reason why he was released by the club after a terrific season in which he scored 28 goals.

Lukaku, a £75 million ($97.3 million, € 82.4 million) capture from Everton, could be one of three players making league debuts for United on Sunday along with Victor Lindelof and Nemanja Matic.

"A word that I like is confidence, they played with confidence and played football".

We had many players on the pitch with a very good game.

It remains to be seen if United can match this level - or even surpass it - each week but the fans will have enjoyed the start to life in Mourinho's second season.

After sacrificing the Premier League to focus on the Europa League with a couple of months of 2016-17 left to play, Mourinho was fully aware that anything other than victory over Ajax in the Stockholm final would have been seen as a disaster.

Despite being top of the league Mourinho insisted the early win means little in the context of the season.

"It was important to start with three points, but it wasn't a great game and wasn't our best performance", Pochettino said. "Last season we were top after the first match so it means nothing", he added.

West Ham United team to play Manchester United: Hart, Zabaleta, Reid, Ogbonna, Masuaku, Noble, Obiang, Fernandes, Ayew, Arnautovic, Hernandez.

Enough guessing games, let's just get to the Man United Starting XI prediction for the season opener vs West Ham. "It was a very positive performance".

"That's what I love most about this squad: the players always give everything", he wrote.

Mourinho said: "Romelu scored in the Super Cup, scored twice today, he's playing well and he's working hard. It's always nice for their confidence". "He knows from me, no pressure at all".
