Manchester United 4-0 West Ham highlights
Romelu Lukaku grabbed a brace while Paul Pogba also got on the score sheet

Manchester United kicked off their Premier League campaign with a 4-0 win over West Ham United at Old Trafford on Sunday. The Red Devils named a strong lineup against a new-look West Ham side that had four new signings in their starting XI.

It was United who drew first blood just after the half-hour mark when Nemanja Matic started a counter-attacking move that saw Marcus Rashford feed Romelu Lukaku who took it first-time to get on the score sheet.

Less than 10 minutes into the second half, Lukaku doubled the lead after heading home a Henrikh Mkhitaryan free-kick. The Belgian striker even tried his best to complete his hat-trick in the second half.

Anthony Martial and Paul Pogba then finished things off with two goals in the final minutes of the game to complete the rout against a Hammers side that failed to turn up.

Here's how Twitter reacted to the game.
