Lukaku, Pogba, Martial Fire Man United Past West Ham

Pogba scored five goals and made four assists in his first season back at Old Trafford but was unable to guide Manchester United back into the Premier League's top four.

Man Utd have now won more opening game fixtures (17) than any other side in Premier League history.

The post Lukaku, Pogba, Martial Fire Man United Past West Ham appeared first on Complete Sports Nigeria. Can the Hammers secure another Premier League point at Old Trafford?

Lukaku, a £75 million ($97.3 million, € 82.4 million) capture from Everton, could be one of three players making league debuts for United on Sunday along with Victor Lindelof and Nemanja Matic.

Romelu Lukaku scored a brace on his home debut for Manchester United as they began the Premier League season with a 4-0 win against West Ham at Old Trafford.

Mkhitaryan's pass freed Juan Mata and when the Spaniard's shot was blocked by West Ham goalkeeper Hart, he squared the ball to Lukaku, but the 24-year-old could not get a shot away. It was clever, quick direct movement from Hernandez that caused problems, and resulted in the lively Fernandes being open and hitting right at De Gea. Hart comes charging out and makes the save but Mata gets the ball again on the by-line.

It's the latest warning since he said earlier this week that North Korea faces "retaliation with fire and fury unlike any the world has seen before".


Former Manchester City stalwart Zabaleta's foul on Rashford gave United a free-kick on the left and from Mkhitaryan's cross, Lukaku stole between Winston Reid and Arthur Masuaku to plant a header past Hart.

Having survived that late scare, it was business as usual for United after the break as they doubled their lead within just eight minutes of the restart, when Zabaleta was yellow-carded for blocking the escaping Rashford on the right-hand edge of the Hammers area. Subs: Sakho 5, Rice 5, Cresswell 5.

After Rashford had left the right-hand upright shuddering with a curler from the left-hand apex of the area, Mkhitaryan released Martial to coolly tuck away United's third before Pogba swept in the fourth from 20 yards. He was everywhere, and the best player on the pitch at times.
