Jose Mourinho's Manchester United kick off their campaign at home against West Ham United while Newcastle United host Tottenham Hotspur on the first Sunday of the new Premier League season.

With new striker Romelu Lukaku scoring twice and another close-season signing, midfielder Nemanja Matic, making a dominating debut, the win appeared to give credence to United's placing with many bookmakers as second favourites, behind neighbours Manchester City.

United continued to press and were rewarded on 33 minutes when they broke from midfield as Marcus Rashford spotted the run of Lukaku in the area and the potential £90million man smashed in his shot off the inside of the near post.

Lukaku, nicknamed the "Belgian Beast", doubled the lead for Manchester United in the 52nd minute when he headed home a Mkhitaryan cross from a free-kick.
