MANCHESTER, Sporting Alert — Manchester United could not have wished for a better start to the new Premier League campaign after Romelu Lukaku scored a brace on debut to lead the home side to a 4-0 win over West Ham at Old Trafford in the season opener for both teams on Sunday.

Anthony Martial climbed off the bench to net a third and Paul Pogba round off the scoring for Jose Mourinho’s side, which collected two assists from playmaker Henrikh Mkhitaryan.

Lukaku got the Red Devils off and running in the 33rd minute when he blasted home off the post, following a brilliantly weighted pass from Rashford.

Nemanja Matic was also instrumental in the build up of the goal after the Serbian broke up a play inside his own half and the deflection off his close down sent Rashford on his way down the left-hand side.

“We did not start especially well, we looked nervous but then we put in a quality performance. A word that I like is confidence, they played with confidence and played football. It was a very positive performance.”
