The opening weekend of the Premier League season ended with an emphatic win as Manchester United beat West Ham United 4-0 at Old Trafford on Sunday but manager Jose Mourinho was wary of fuelling talk of his team as title contenders.

"And since I left I always thought he could be a ideal player for us". Today will give us an early indication whether they will be more clinical this season. "We should be excited, the players are excited, there's a buzz around the training ground, I know the fans are excited - they should be".

Speaking after goals from Romelu Lukaku (2), Anthony Martial and Paul Pogba had sunk his side, Bilic said: "The game could have finished two-nil".

'So I think it was good for him to score and for all the guys arriving at new clubs who scored goals on their first games.

'The performance, and the level of confidence is what means for me.

In the last five matches of West Ham United in English Premier League and Friendly matches, they have won two matches, lost two matches and another match ended in a draw.

Yet this was a display to strike fear into United's title rivals - especially champion Chelsea, which was beaten to the signing of Lukaku and then made what appears an ill-judged decision to sell Matic to United.

However, Wenger has now revealed that Giroud has opted to stay at Arsenal and fight for his place in the team beyond the summer. The 28-year-old watched from the stands as Olivier Giroud's late header earned the Gunners three points.

Former Manchester United defender Gary Neville has praised Nemanja Matic after his impressive Premier League debut for the club and stated he "cannot believe Chelsea have let him go".

"I don't think I am going to win it because I always win it in the second season".

It has raised questions about Chelsea's decision to let the Serbia worldwide join their Premier League title rivals, but former Stamford Bridge boss Mourinho insisted that he did nothing to "disturb" his old player.

"On the other hand, Pep Guardiola sometimes neglects the defensive side of things on the premise that all-out attack will conquer any defence and they will win more games like that". He doesn't need time to adapt.

Romelu Lukaku scored in seven straight Premier League matches for Everton against West Ham between 2013 and 2016.

Mourinho appears serious about his claims having added another centre-back to his ranks without selling any of Smalling, Bailly, Jones, Rojo, meaning the club have 5 first team defenders with possibly Axel Tuanzebe involved as well as the youngster is highly rated by his manager.
