Things couldn’t have gone any better for the Red Devils and their most expensive summer signing in their opening match of the new Premier League season.
Emphatic 4-0 win over West Ham United for the team, two goals for Romelu Lukaku, who had a certain teammate in mind talking to MUTV after the game at Old Trafford.
With me and Marcus, there’s something special. Hopefully we can produce even more than we did today. We clicked from the first day that I arrived, and I knew that he would help me settle in at the club
the Belgium international said about his young English teammate Marcus Rashford, who set him up for his first goal, before Lukaku netted again early in the second half.
As for United’s other two new arrivals, Nemanja Matic and Victor Lindelof, enjoyed a totally opposite afternoon at Old Trafford, with the Serbian playing the full 90 minutes and showing why United were so eager to sign him, while the Sweden international wasn’t even on the bench.
I think Real Madrid was too early for him. He played because Jones and Bailly were both suspended. The difference between Lukaku and Matic is that they have years and years of experience of Premier League
Jose Mourinho told reporters about Lindelof, who did not have a good game against Real Madrid in the UEFA Super Cup.
In 2004 I bought a phenomenal central defender to England, Ricardo Carvalho. He was one of the best central defenders in the last decade in the Premier League. But he struggled and it was difficult for him to come and adapt in the beginning. Victor needs a little bit of time and he is going to have that time. Let’s go step by step because Victor is a fantastic player
the Manchester United manager also said.
