PEEP! PEEP! PEEEEEEEEEEEP!

That is very emphatically that. Jose Mourinho's men have laid down the marker in this season opener - the first time since a certain bespectacled Scotsman was stood on that touchline chewing gum. 

4-0, and the scoreline does not flatter to deceive... this was outstanding from United; West Ham meanwhile have a long way to go before they start resembling a cohesive unit. 

That's all from me for the weekend, Anirudh Menon signing out... 

Toodle-ooo!
...
93' Joe Hart almost Joe Harts his way to conceding a fifth goal as Lingard puts pressure on him but he scrambles it clear
...
92' THREE MINUTES ADDED ON. Chicharito gets his first shot on goal after skipping away from his shadow - Bailly - but smashes it way off target. 
...
Oh ho ho ho ho. Pogba plays a superb one-two with Martial and runs onto his return with that grace of his before looking up, sees Hart utterly stranded, and passes it into the far post. Another lovely, lovely, goal this. 
...
90' GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOALL!! POGBOOOOOOOOM!
...
89' Lingard has come on for the brilliant Mkhitaryan by the by. 
...
OH! United move up through the gears rapidly and Mkhitaryan finishes off a sweet, sweet, passing move by playing in Martial - and the young man slides it in under Hart with calm confidence. Lovely goal.
...
87' GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAL! MARTIAAAAAAAAAAAAAL!
...
86' Lukaku's loose touch grants Chicharito the ball in the United half, and the Little Pea tries to slip in Sakho, but Bailly is right there. As he has been all day.
...
85' Pogba and Lukaku do a twenty-yard one-two with the Belgian donning the provider's role - but Pogba's acrobatic effort is blocked off by Reid. 
...
84' Oh! Matic hangs his head in anguish as he just overhits a through ball (at the end of a cute one-two with Mkhitaryan) to Lukaku. 
...
83' Martial is running straight at Zabaleta but that veteran does superbly to hold his ground against his much faster opponent. Just a goal kick for now - but you sense there may be a goal to come here
...
82' Mourinho and Bilic are still engaged in conversation - the kind that two old men share over a beer and a barbeque. Nice to see the camaraderie.
...
81' West Ham roll their last... erm... roll of the dice as Aaron Cresswell replaces Masuaku
...
79' Substitution - the excellent Marcus Rashford receives a standing ovation as he is replaced by Anthony Martial. 
...
78' Arnatouvic gets another chance as Masuaku's delivery bounces off Bailly and onto the Austrian who's found space for himself at the back post. He can merely smash it into row Z, though. 
...
76' West Ham do look decent on the ball - when they get it - and triangulate their way around United's massive midfield. Somewhere across town, Pep Guardiola's just given a standing ovation... sure the move led to nothing, but the passing - wah!
...
74' The artist's brush goes off to be replaced by the lumberjack's machine-saw. Mata off, Marouane Fellaini on. 
...
73' Rashford races in behind Reid, and tries a Zizou-roulette, that the veteran New Zealander reads well enough to make sure it's just a corner. Blind takes the set piece... and in one word it's rubbish
...
71' OH! That would have been SOME goal. Mata and Pogba toy with the West Ham midfield before the latter releases Valencia on the right. He swings it in early to Blind who has ghosted in at the back post. The Dutchman smashes it with impeccable technique - the bounce-off-the-ground technique that Ozil so loves - but the ball bounces just over the bar. 
...
70' OH HO HO Pogba nutmegs Zabaleta into retirement, but there's a reason the Argentine got to where he is right now... he irritates Pogba enough to draw a tug on  the shirt and the refs blow for a foul just as he bounds into the box. 
...
69' By the by it was the Hammers' Hammer Mark Noble that was taken off for Rice. United are in the mood alright, they are passing it around with menacing purpose. 
...
67' Matic picks out Pogba with a cute chip that the latter would have been proud of - the Frenchman bounds into the box but West Ham do well to close the wall around him. 
...
66' You know who is a certified A-grade talent? MARCUS RASHFORD IS WHO! The young man races at Zabaleta turns him inside out, cuts in and absolutely leathers a ball straight off the base of the far post. WOOOOOOOF!!!
...
65' Rice, 17, nicks the ball off Pogba - the Irish lad is said to be one helluva talent.But United have it back soon enough....
