Man United's Victor Lindelof not ready for Premier League - Jose Mourinho

Zlatan Ibrahimovic

GETTY Zlatan Ibrahimovic has opened talks with Man Utd over a new contract

"We finished the season winning the Europa League and qualifying for the Champions League. We are involved in four competitions and step by step, match after match, we are going to fight".

The key issue behind that disappointing home record was a lack of goals.

The Belgium striker, a £75 million signing from Everton, struck either side of halftime to take his tally of goals against West Ham to 11 in his last 11 appearances.

At St James' Park, Shelvey was sent off early in the second half for deliberately treading on Tottenham star Dele Alli, who was on the ground only yards from referee Andre Marriner. He's just turned 29 and he has five years' Premier League experience. His pass was weighted perfectly for the onrushing Lukaku, whose low shot kissed the post on its way beyond Joe Hart.

The United manager stressed that the 23-year-old defender needs time to adjust to the Premier League, like countless new players to England before him. The Belgian escaped his marker en route to a floated Henrikh Mkhitaryan free-kick, with Hart powerless to prevent the bullet header rippling the net. He could not have asked for a better start.

It was founded in the year 1970 by the merger of Paris FC and Stade Saint-Germain. "The players come to talk to me". The trio dubbed as MSN used to terrorise the opposition with their skilful and breath-taking football.

Goals from French pair Anthony Martial and Paul Pogba in the dying minutes sealed the victory for the Old Trafford. His initial outing under Jurgen Klopp suggested things are going to be different this time around. Martial scored the third goal with a fine finish and laid the ball off for Pogba's effort as well.

Matic might not be as glamorous a signing as a new centre forward but he is already having a big impact. No wonder Antonio Conte isn't best pleased.

Victor Lindelof failed to make the Manchester United squad for the West Ham game. Mourinho will surely have been very content with the afternoon's work.

The Red Devils also start with Valencia, Jones, Bailly and Blind, while Rashford joins Lukaku up front.

"He apologised to everyone and we believe he will come back stronger".

Fabregas was booked for sarcastically applauding Pawson's decision to give a free-kick against him and much worse was to follow. Ward scores - The full-back plays a neat one-two and from the inside left, he slams in a shot past Courtois .

Juan Mata and Rashford did well in the wide roles - Rashford especially, who hit the post in the second half - but there is still room for an out-and-out winger.

Mourinho's attitude is therefore wise and with 37 games of the season to come - along with a Champions League campaign - he knows there will be moments of doubt and questioning.

West Ham won just one of their opening seven games last season - a run that led to plenty of debate about whether he was still the right man for the job. The London Stadium hosting the World Athletics Championships means Bilic's side play United, Southampton and Newcastle away from home before Huddersfield's visit on Sep 11.

Lukaku scored a consolation goal as United lost 2-1 to Real Madrid in the UEFA Super Cup in the Macedonian capital Skopje on Tuesday and his team-mates have been impressed by what they have seen in pre-season.

And his confidence comes from the major shake-up at Old Trafford in his year in charge.
