Romelu Lukaku scores twice as Man United beat West Ham
Romelu Lukaku scored twice on his Premier League debut for Manchester United as they triumph 4 – 0 over West Ham at Old Trafford on Sunday. The Belgian striker who signed from Everton in a staggering transfer fee valued at US$98 million last month began justifying the investment with two lovely goals and an impressive presence that added a lot of bite to United’s attack.
Substitute, Anthony Martial made it 3 – 0 in the 87′ minute and Paul Pogba completed the rout of West Ham after he nicked in a cross by Anthony Martial to the delight of the home fans. Another summer recruit, Nemanja Matic who signed from Chelsea had an excellent debut in the defensive midfield role, dismantling moves from West Ham players and initiating United’s attack with precision.
