West Ham United's 2017-18 Premier League season is set to start on Sunday, with the Hammers facing a daunting trip to face Manchester United at Old Trafford. We could have scored one goal or whatever, but it wasn't to be.
"To play in front of such a crowd is a dream come true but most importantly is the three points", Lukaku told Sky Sports.
"I am very happy to have him because he is one of those players with no question marks".
The Belgian made it 2-0 seven minutes after the break, rising to meet a Mkhitaryan free kick with a superbly angled header into the far bottom corner. "He was really good on the ball, better than I thought, composed".
The former Sweden striker was United's top scorer last season, hitting 28 goals as they won the Europa League, the League Cup and the Community Shield. "They look like the type of players that were needed to correct what was wrong last season, and Chelsea have helped them and had a big influence on that". The Red Devils are off to Swansea next week, while West Ham stays on the road and faces Southampton.
So, Manchester United are top of the league; the gauntlet has been thrown!
"The only thing I know is that I brought him to Stamford Bridge because I thought he was a player with special qualities and since I left I always thought he could be a ideal player for us".
Meanwhile, Manchester United chief, Jose Mourinho, was in no doubt over what pleased him the most: "The win". Neither of the team wants to lose their first game of the season, and match like this would be more than just a game for the both teams.
The same source noted how the visitors will be without schemer Manuel Lanzini, target man Andy Carroll and winger Michail Antonio, making Arnautovic and Hernandez all the more important.
"But for me, with years and years of experience in the Premier League, my feet are on the ground and I am calm", he said. Mourinho, who has won the domestic league title in his second season at every club he's managed, will demand a title challenge at the very least. He was one of the best central defenders in the last decade in the Premier League but he struggled.
Having finishing second last term, Tottenham will hope their winning start bodes well for a sustained bid to dethrone Chelsea.
