Paul Pogba and summer signing Nemanja Matic play in centre midfield with Mata, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Rashford giving new boy Romelu Lukaku support up front.

Romelu Lukaku scored twice on his Premier League debut as the Red Devils went top of the Premier League with a 4-0 win over West Ham.

West Ham United team to play Manchester United: Hart, Zabaleta, Reid, Ogbonna, Masuaku, Noble, Obiang, Fernandes, Ayew, Arnautovic, Hernandez.

They finished off their first season under Jose Mourinho in glorious fashion, claiming the Europa League in Stockholm, but notably struggled for potency in the Premier League, slumping to sixth spot.

"However, the most important thing is to score, I don't care about the celebration".

He might have been able to celebrate his first league goal even sooner.

Mourinho has indicated that he wants a fourth signing before the transfer window shuts on August 31, as he needs a winger to bolster his squad. "I just think the competition can be better than ever".

Last season they've met three times and Manchester were better in two games, while third one ended in a draw.

The Belgian striker, who bagged 25 goals past year with the Toffees, notched three times in pre-season and he got his name to the scoreline in Tuesday's UEFA Super Cup loss to real Madrid (2-1).

"Obviously were still missing a few players but that shows the strength of the squad - although we're missing some players we still have the quality to go there and do something good". Today will give us an early indication whether they will be more clinical this season. "It is a disastrous result for us and the worst scenario that could have happened".

"We also have people coming later - Ashley Young, Luke Shaw, Marcos Rojo, maybe Zlatan (Ibrahimovic)".

But Neville, a former household name at Old Trafford, now believes United are in a position to win English football's top prize once more this season, particularly after the investment they have made into the team. "4-0 against a good team, we have to continue to work like this, to play like this". "I was happy and it was a very positive performance". A brilliant Ryan Giggs free-kick put United in control in the first half before three goals in 13 minutes added gloss to the scoreline. His side will not get free pass against fellow Top 6 clubs, neither will weaker sides be ready to open themselves up and leave the space for Red Devils to exploit.

Manchester United are unbeaten in their last nine Premier League home games with West Ham United (W7 D2 L0).
