Lukaku hits double in United rout, Spurs also win

Lukaku hits double in United rout, Spurs also win

"Ibrahimovic was fantastic for United last season in so many respects, but he was at the back end of his career and Lukaku is perfectly suited to a Mourinho team in my eyes".

Mourinho goes into his second season at Old Trafford needing significant improvement in the Premier League after United finished sixth in May.

West Ham United team to play Manchester United: Hart, Zabaleta, Reid, Ogbonna, Masuaku, Noble, Obiang, Fernandes, Ayew, Arnautovic, Hernandez. I don't want to talk about it too much. "But I will behave on the touchline, even if goals are offside", he said.

The Premier League match between Manchester United and West Ham will be broadcast live online and on NBCSN.

Gary Neville: Nemanja Matic's Man United arrival from Chelsea 'strange'
Antonio Conte concedes that the departure of Nemanja Matic was an unexpected blow to his plans at Chelsea this season. The signing of Bakayoko meant that, had Matic stayed, he would have been forced to accept the role of a benchwarmer.

Hernandez won two Premier League titles during his time at United, the second of which came in 2013 as Sir Alex Ferguson retired in style by delivering another trophy for the club.

As for how it felt to pull on a United shirt following spells with Chelsea, West Brom on loan and Everton, ex-Anderlecht man Lukaku said: "I was thinking about it a lot during the week". The reality of the game was it was always a hard game for us.

Mourinho's optimism is based on three beliefs; he feels he has a more settled squad than when he arrived, that they have had a better pre-season than 12 months ago and that their rivals at the top of the division will have greater distractions in European competition this time.

It's just the start, the manager has a plan, we will try to follow it and hopefully it will take us somewhere. "It is a disastrous result for us and the worst scenario that could have happened".

Scaramucci: Trump 'Needed to Have Been Much Harsher' in Initial Charlottesville Statements
The White House did not immediately respond to CNNMoney's request for comment about Scaramucci's remarks. Scaramucci on Sunday said that "for the record, I thought that was off the record".

Since Mourinho's arrival money has been spent endlessly at Old Trafford, with Paul Pogba returning to become the most expensive player in world football last summer, before striker Romelu Lukaku was signed for £75million in July.

Injuries to the likes of Marcos Rojo and Luke Shaw will also give Mourinho headaches temporarily. "But today was very good and he was very effective, with the first goal especially".

"I never thought it was possible unless something special was happening and his agent told me we could have him and we were very happy with that".

Mourinho's attitude is therefore wise and with 37 games of the season to come - along with a Champions League campaign - he knows there will be moments of doubt and questioning.

North Korea: No imminent threat of nuclear war, says Central Intelligence Agency chief
But make no mistake about it ... the increased chance that there will be a nuclear missile in Denver is a very serious threat". In response, North Korea announced a detailed plan to fire ballistic missiles towards Guam, a USA territory in the Pacific.

"I think the club has done a fantastic job, bring in this quality, this type of player". Carrick looks to pass the ball forward and that allows Pogba to play higher up the pitch.
