Predicted Manchester United Starting XI vs West Ham United

Romelu Lukaku hailed his debut double for Manchester United as a dream come true as the Belgian striker inspired his side's 4-0 demolition of West Ham on Sunday. A superb through ball from Marcus Rashford gave Romelu Lukaku his first Premier League goal for Manchester United.

Home form let down United last season with their 10 home draws the highest in the league and the team had more wins away than at Old Trafford.

Gary Neville has piled the pressure on his former club Manchester United by insisting they must go all out for the Premier League title this season.

West Ham had a rare chance on the stroke of half-time as Edimilson Fernandes forced David de Gea to parry a shot.

Lukaku picked up where he had left off in the second half, first releasing Rashford to run through and shoot wide and then doubling his tally in the 52nd minute.

Mourinho has built up his persona over the summer to dismiss any doubts there may have been in their relationship after the Chelsea saga.

"In the last two or three seasons they've been defensively okay but not scoring enough goals has hurt United and I think there are goals in the side now".

At St James' Park, Spurs' victory was nearly as easy once Shelvey suffered his moment of madness in the 48th minute.

Shelvey was sent off for treading on the foot of Alli, an act that was even more foolish as it took place right in front of the referee.

Another fellow new signing Nemanja Matic impressed at the Theatre of Dreams, with his shielding of the Utd backline allowing Pogba more freedom and the first goal almost came after a sublime weighted through ball from the Frenchmen found Juan Mata whose attempted cross to Lukaku was hacked away by Angelo Ogbonna as the Belgian was set to poke home.

"He (Jose Mourinho) wants me to be a leader for the team and create as much as I can". Last season we were also top of the league in the first match and we finished sixth so this means nothing.

"In many ways, it is my team".

United join Arsenal, Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur on maximum points and while West Ham offered scant resistance, the early signs suggest Mourinho's men will not end the season 24 points off the pace again.

And Gary Neville thinks United have done some great business in the transfer window and looked "powerful" although refused to get ahead of himself.

And it's starting to show. That duo could generate lots of joy for West Ham fans.

Manchester United recorded a very impressive win on Sunday afternoon.

"You know he's injured, he needs time to recover, he's not ready to play tomorrow", Mourinho said.
