Romelu Lukaku and Manchester United up and running in some style

Willian confirmed talks with Man Utd

Willian confirmed talks with Man Utd

West Ham, who held United to a draw at Old Trafford last season, held off the dominant hosts for much of the first half until Lukaku broke the deadlock in the 33rd minute. The difference between Lukaku and Matic is exactly that, they have years and years of the Premier League.

"Lukaku has done a great job with the clubs that he has been at", said United right-back Antonio Valencia.

Substitute Anthony Martial ran onto Mkhitaryan's through-ball to slot home a third goal in the 87th and Pogba was given space to curl in from 25 metres in injury time.

It was a dominating display from United and they look good value to win the Premier League this season if they can to continue to perform as they did today.

Mourinho said: "I brought him to Stamford Bridge because I thought he was a player with special qualities and since I left I always thought he could be a flawless player for us".

After a quiet start, United and thier new £75million man came to life as the Belgian announced himself to the home fans with stunning finish after 33 minutes. United won most of the loose balls and were energetic in possession.

"I think Real Madrid was too early for him", Mourinho said. "Second transfer window for us".

And it's starting to show.

Lukaku narrowly missed out on a hat-trick just past the hour mark, Pablo Zabaleta, another former City man making his first competitive start for West Ham, required to pull off a desperate block following good work from Rashford down the left and Mkhitaryan's lay-off. It should mean Pogba, who is already benefiting from having a ball-winner like Matic alongside him, gets more room in central midfield.

Lindelof also played against Real Madrid earlier this week, in the Super Cup final in Macedonia, so his absence probably wasn't that surprising.

Harry Kane, the top scorer in the last two Premier League seasons, has now failed to score in his last 11 league games in August, although he struck the post against Newcastle.

Mourinho said center back Victor Lindelof, another United summer signing, wasn't included in the squad as he needs time to settle.

Dele Alli was on target, though, to bolster his growing reputation as the most prolific midfielder in the division.

Tottenham immediately took charge of the match and Alli slid in at the far post to steer in a cross from Christian Eriksen in the 61st minute. They eventually turned it around and finished 11th, but Bilic won't want a similar situation this time. Their glorious introduction to the Premier League owned much to Mounie, who powered home a 26th-minute header shortly after Joel Ward's own goal and wrapped up three points by crowning a 78th-minute counter-attack.
