Romelu Lukaku immediately started to pay off his transfer fee with two goals as Manchester United beat West Ham 4-0 in their Premier League opener.
The £75 million summer signing struck in each half as United justified pre-season optimism with a sparkling and confident display at Old Trafford.
The Hammers were completely outplayed and could easily have trailed by more goals before substitute Anthony Martial and Paul Pogba finally put a more realistic slant on the scoreline in the closing minutes.
Here we take a look at how Twitter reacted to United’s ‘statement made’ kind of a win.
Lukaku showed his strength and aerial prowess all day today. If Manchester United can bring in an orthodox winger, they will be so strong.— Liam Canning (@LiamPaulCanning) August 13, 2017
