Mourinho not getting carried away by United's brilliant start

Lukaku scored a brace in his league debut Manchester United in their 4-0 win over West Ham at Old Trafford on Sunday and was a constant menace for the Hammers defenders.

Atkinson previously won the FA cup twice with the Red Devils but was ultimately shown the door for being unable to win the Premier League.

MANCHESTER, England (AP) - Two summer signings costing $150 million inspired Manchester United to an easy victory in its opening Premier League match of the season.

There were plenty of positives for the United manager.

Gary Neville is "concerned" for Chelsea ahead of the new Premier League season after they sold Nemanja Matic to title rivals Manchester United this summer.

The £40million midfielder controlled most of the game, leading United's defensive effort and prompting a lot of their attacks.

Jose Mourinho has explained Victor Lindelof was left out of the West Ham matchday squad because he is not ready for Premier League action.

"The fact we start winning and are top, it means nothing".

He said he spoke to Ganassi about it Thursday, after Chevrolet's event in Detroit introducing its 2018 Cup auto . Said Suarez: "I don't really know, I was very, very tight and I was just trying to hold my line".


Mourinho said afterwards he had wanted Matic, who was named Man of the Match, at Old Trafford last season. I don't know. Only thing I know is that, of course, with Chelsea money, I brought him to Stamford Bridge because I thought he was a player with special qualities.

"So we have him, and we are very happy with that".

'The team was confident and played great football.

Whoever you are playing for as a centre-forward, if you are playing for a non-league side or, like Lukaku, you have just joined one of the biggest clubs in the world for £75m, you are absolutely desperate to get off to a good start in your first game for your new team. I hope Jose plays him up front with Rashford.

"The team did a good job today, everybody was creative", Lukaku said.

Two goals from Romelu Lukaku had Old Trafford roaring.

"So I think it was good for him to score and for all the guys arriving at new clubs who scored goals on their first games".

"Even if he doesn't score goals, with his pace and presence he will have them on their toes". It's always nice for their confidence'. His first goal broke the 0-0 deadlock, as he took a delightful pass from Marcus Rashford and hammered it past a hapless Joe Hart at the near post.
