Manchester United kicked off with an amazing performance against West Ham in the opening game in the Premier League. The team looked strong and played offensive scoring 4 goals to nil against new-looking West Ham at Old Trafford on Sunday.
Man United drew their first blood when Belgian striker Romelu Lukaku scored his maiden goal with the help of his teammates Nemanja Matic and Marcus Rashford. Lukaku didn’t stop there, he doubled the score by heading Henrikh Mkhitaryan free-kick.
Lukaku just fell short of his hat trick when finally Anthony Martial and Paul Pogba sealed the match in the last minutes of the game. Manchester United now tops the premier league with the strong performance in the match. “I knew today would be good!” said the man of the game Romelu Lukaku.
Man United broke the record of winning most of the opening matches of Premier League 17, surpassing Chelsea 16.
The fans cheered up on Twitter to celebrate the Devils in Red’s victory
Nemanja Matic immense in 1st half, bossing midfield, winning the ball, launching attacks, fine passing, supporting attacks. #MUNWHU

Worth noting, again, that this West Ham team are awful. United have been sublime but West Ham really are poor.
