Jose Mourinho not getting carried away by Man United win vs

Jose Mourinho not getting carried away by Man United win vs

As it was, they shouldn't be too greedy.

Mourinho believes United can win the title, despite starting the season at a similar level to last summer - with the arrivals of Romelu Lukaku, Nemanja Matic and Victor Lindelof offset by injuries to Marcos Rojo, Luke Shaw and Ashley Young. The venue of the match is at Old Trafford, Stretford.

Lukaku ended a hugely satisfying afternoon waving appreciatively to the Stretford End and he might have finished with the match ball as a souvenir had it not been for a brilliant saving tackle by Pablo Zabaleta, one of three West ham debutants, just after the hour.

But now the Portuguese will know that the Reds must improve on their sixth-place finish and be challenging for the title once again. Potential champions? You wouldn't bet your mortgage against it happening.

'Manchester City should come good, but Brighton, Burnley and Huddersfield could struggle'
Their doggedness against the Premier League's most gifted opposition suggested they are unlikely to be a soft touch for anyone. I saw him on the TV last season, but it will depend on how he and the other players adjust to the Premier League.

The very first time West Ham completely lost their shape and dared to dream of something other than containment, Manchester United switched from slow and technical to fast and dynamic.

The woodwork then denied the Red Devils a third goal in the 66th minute as Rashford unleashed a curling effort that crashed against the upright.

An impressive performance from Jose Mourinho's side who continue their season next Saturday with a trip to Wales against Swansea, looking to make it two wins out of two. "But I now have a good group, a club much better equipped and much better organised in the areas that support the first-team squad", Mourinho told reporters. Another manager might have felt duty-bound to play such an expensive player.

West Ham offered little in attack with Javier Hernandez not enjoying his return to Old Trafford.

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.

Slaven Bilic had clearly set up his side to be compact and frustrate the home side, but Mourinho's men were in a rampant mood as they laid siege to the West Ham goal.

West Ham were completely outplayed and could easily have trailed by more goals before substitute Anthony Martial and Paul Pogba finally put a more realistic slant on the scoreline in the closing minutes.
