United drew 1-1 against West Ham last season at home and Jose Mourinho will be hoping to better that result this time around and start the season on high.

Marko Arnautovic, Pablo Zabaleta and Joe Hart have all signed for Slaven Bilic's side, as has former United striker Javier Hernandez, who is in line to make his debut at Old Trafford this Sunday.

United play West Ham at Old Trafford on Sunday and Mourinho has all his new signings available but is without last season's top scorer Ibrahimovic.

United, who finished fifth last season but qualified for the Champions League through their Europa League success, will be looking for a speedy start as Mourinho prepares for his second full season in charge.

"I want to see a team go back to playing two up front".

"Then I scored the last goal of his era and it's something that's easy to say but hard to achieve". The difference between Lukaku and Matic is that they have years and years [of experience in] the Premier League.

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".

Two detained in Dutch tainted eggs investigation
This includes in the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, and France after authorities confirmed that fipronil had been used. Health minister Sophia Chan said yesterday that the authorities were "strengthening" inspections of eggs from Europe.

The Red Devils have enjoyed a pretty successful summer campaign, beating LA Galaxy, Real Salt Lake, Manchester City, Valarenga, and Sampdoria with relative ease, but the game against Real Madrid in the UEFA Super Cup showed that Murinho's team is still far from European elite.

"We are much better organised at every level - the medical department is better, the structure that organises the logistics is much better". Well-struck efforts from Eric Cantona and Denis Irwin had already put the Reds in cruise control and United maintained such imperious form to go on and win the title for the fourth time in five seasons.

It's just the start, the manager has a plan, we will try to follow it and hopefully it will take us somewhere.

He added: "It depends on what is happening or what was happening behind doors and we don't know. 4-0 against a good team, we have to continue to work like this, to play like this".

"There are areas in his game for him to improve, like his movement and his general team play".

Injuries to the likes of Marcos Rojo and Luke Shaw will also give Mourinho headaches temporarily. Mourinho has to win the league here, ' Neville said on Sky Sports, prior to Newcastle's clash with Tottenham.

And the Armenian made it two assists for the day a few minutes from time as he played in substitute Anthony Martial with a lovely first-time pass.
