DREAM TEAM POINTS: Man United 4 West Ham 0

Romelu Lukaku continued his ridiculous scoring record against West Ham on his United debut

West Ham must be positively sick of the sight of Romelu Lukaku.

The big Belgian striker is prolific enough normally, but against the Hammers his scoring record is close to devastating.

After his £75m move to Manchester United this summer, Lukaku’s eyes must have lit up when the Irons emerged as his first opponents in a Red Devils shirt.

And another two goals in a emphatic 4-0 rout, the 24-year-old took his tally to 10 and then 11 goals against them in his career for Everton and now United:

Lukaku opened the scoring inside the first half with a tidy finish off the post before nodding in a second after the break.

United were in cruise control for most of the game and added gloss to the scoreline through late goals from Anthony Martial and Paul Pogba.

While Lukaku may grab the headlines for his scoring exploits, another debutant in Nemanja Matic was also instrumental in midfield.

A title tilt this season? Maybe…
