Why Victor Lindelof was left out of Man Utd's matchday squad to face West Ham

Romelu Lukaku introduced himself to Old Trafford in triumphant fashion with two goals as Manchester United crushed West Ham United 4-0 in an impressive Premier League opener on Sunday.

Manchester United won the EFL Cup and the Europa League last season to mask over their Premier League disappointment.

As United broke Marcus Rashford shaped to pass across to Henrikh Mkhitaryan but he instead slipped it through to Lukaku, who slotted it past Joe Hart.

Antonio Conte denies team selection was a message to Chelsea hierarchy
While there will be plenty of deflated Chelsea fans around the world, there was one major positive to be taken from Saturday. The jeers were likely directed at the match officials, with Chelsea having a player sent off in both halves.

United did make it three a few minutes from time when Mkhitaryan played in substitute Anthony Martial, with the France worldwide then finishing past Hart.

And the Armenian made it two assists for the day a few minutes from time as he played in substitute Anthony Martial with a handsome first-time pass.

But with Noble flying in once too often, Mkhitaryan's quick free-kick released Juan Mata, who was denied by the ankles of the advancing Hart and when the Spaniard returned the ball into the six-yard box, Arthur Masuaku brilliantly thwarted Lukaku. 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.

RED DEVILS: De Gea, Valencia, Blind, Bailly, Jones, Matić, Pogba, Mata (Fellaini 75), Mkhitaryan (Lingard 88), Rashford (Martial 79), Lukaku.

Javier Hernandez was there as the rot set in under David Moyes and he will make his Old Trafford return on Sunday after joining West Ham from Bayer Leverkusen in a £16 million deal. Great from Pogba, awful from Hart.

He could have had a third but for Zabaleta's timely block on the hour mark and Rashford came close to a deserved goal, striking the foot of the post with a teasing effort from the left flank. By that point, West Ham's heads had already dropped.

Asked if the league is always United's priority, Carrick continues: "The league is special because it is such a tough division to win".
