Manchester United Brushes Aside West Ham to Secure Easy Opening Day Victory

Manchester United Brushes Aside West Ham to Secure Easy Opening Day Victory

Harry Kane, the top scorer in the last two Premier League seasons, has now failed to score in his last 11 league games in August, although he struck the post against Newcastle.

Anthony Martial and Paul Pogba added the other two goals to ensure a winning start to the season.

United begin their Premier League campaign at home to West Ham on Sunday.

United have added striker Romelu Lukaku, midfielder Nemanja Matic and defender Victor Lindelof to their squad.

Mourinho went with Phil Jones and Eric Bailly as his centre-back pairing with Chris Smalling named on the bench, and the United boss said afterwards that Lindelof, who started the UEFA Super Cup defeat to Real Madrid last week, is not yet ready for his Premier League bow.

The Mexican global said he would respect his former club, but vowed to give maximum effort to help the Hammers start the season with a win. The former Juventus man had a slow start to the 2016-17 season, after scoring just 5 goals in as many as 30 matches for the club.

United lost only once at home last season but too many draws at home and away led to their downfall.

Meanwhile, Manchester United chief, Jose Mourinho, was in no doubt over what pleased him the most: "The win".

Injuries to the likes of Marcos Rojo and Luke Shaw will also give Mourinho headaches temporarily.

The Premier League champions made the weird decision to sanction the 29-year-old's £40m transfer to their direct title rivals earlier this month.

Talking about his win, the filmmaker said, "This is my first global award and it will truly be remembered". The star studded gala event was also attended by Malaika Arora, Tannishtha Chatterjee and Shoojit Sircar.


Paris Saint-Germain full-back Serge Aurier has also been linked with a move to Old Trafford.

Mourinho has seemed adamant at improving the squad's league position this time around and it appears like the message has been well received by his players. "So step by step because Victor is a fantastic player". How will Manchester United perform this season?

"We always had more goals with wingers, midfielders getting 10 goals, central defenders getting five goals and last season that did not happen much".

Mourinho has built up his persona over the summer to dismiss any doubts there may have been in their relationship after the Chelsea saga. Bringing the 36-year-old back to Old Trafford on a short term deal is a no brainer for the management at Manchester United.

Carrick continued, "For large spells of last season, we felt we should have been higher up in the league than we were and performances certainly warranted that for large periods as well".
