​No Zlatan Ibrahimovic, no problem for Manchester United and Jose Mourinho. 

Romelu Lukaku scored twice on his Premier League debut for the Red Devils to first give his side the lead, before then putting them firmly in control with his - and the team's - second in the second-half. West Ham were on the receiving end in a game that ultimately ended 4-0.

Lukaku's first saw the powerful Belgian forward latch onto Marcus Rashford's excellent through ball and accurately place his finish in off the post past a helpless Joe Hart.


Having scored against Real Madrid - albeit a consolation - in the Super Cup last week, Lukaku has made an impressive start since his £75m arrival from Everton.

Here's some of the best reactions from Twitter after Lukaku emphatically struck United into the lead:

​​

​​

​​

​​ ​​Ibrahimovic bagged a healthy 28 goals in all competitions last season, but could Lukaku be on for an even more prolific campaign?

​​

​​

​​Some had expressed scepticism over how successful Lukaku would be at Old Trafford, but he didn't take long to silence the doubters.

 

​​

​​And things got even better for Man Utd's big summer signing when he netted his second in the second-half, via a textbook header; once again, Twitter had its say on the subject.

​​

​​

​​Ultimately it was a great day for United as a whole; Martial and Pogba added to Lukaku's strikes as the Red Devils romped home 4-0 and laid claim to perhaps tabling the most impressive performance from the opening round of Premier League fixtures.

So, Manchester United are top of the league; t he gauntlet has been thrown!
