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

14 August, 2017, 06:03 | Author: Alberta Rodriguez

Man United will open their 2017-18 Premier League campaign at home to West Ham United on Sunday afternoon.

Tottenham didn't spend anything in the transfer market during the offseason but still got off to a winning start Sunday.

Manchester United team to play West Ham: De Gea, Valencia, Jones, Bailly, Blind, Matic, Pogba, Mata, Mkhitaryan, Rashford, Lukaku.

The Belgian striker, who bagged 25 goals previous year with the Toffees, notched three times in pre-season and he got his name to the scoreline in Tuesday's UEFA Super Cup loss to real Madrid (2-1).

"We deserve a rest tomorrow", Mourinho told BT Sport. "I also think Marcus Rashford was good on the wing and had a decent assist for Lukaku in the first half".

West Ham will look to record their first win when they travel to Southampton.

Mourinho has built up his persona over the summer to dismiss any doubts there may have been in their relationship after the Chelsea saga.

After Lukaku's demolition job it was the turn of substitute Anthony Martial and then Pogba to add the gloss to the result to make it 4-0.

At St James' Park, Spurs' victory was nearly as easy once Shelvey suffered his moment of madness in the 48th minute.

Shelvey stomped on the right foot of Alli, who was sitting on the ground, as he tried to resume play after a free-kick had been awarded.

"I was excited in the warm up, the fans greeting much and just running around, feeling the atmosphere".

What is most striking is the size and physical presence of this United team, even more so now Matic and Lukaku have joined.

By then, the Argentine would like to have added to his squad after a frustrating transfer window.

And it's starting to show. It should mean Pogba, who is already benefiting from having a ball-winner like Matic alongside him, gets more room in central midfield. Manchester United defeated West Ham 4-0.

"You know, he's injured, he needs time to recover", the United boss said.

Lukaku was the signature signing at 75 million pounds ($97 million) and he made it three goals in two competitive games, after his consolation against Real Madrid in the Super Cup on Tuesday.

Three of the last five Premier League games between these two clubs have ended in a draw, with one win apiece in this run.

Dele Alli was on target, though, to bolster his growing reputation as the most prolific midfielder in the division. We scored a lot of goals and created a lot of chances.

Eriksen was again the provider for the second goal, running into the area before being beaten to the finish by Davies, up from left back.
