Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho hails new signings Romelu Lukaku and Nemanja Matic after their opening-weekend win over West Ham United.

"And since I left I always thought he could be a flawless player for us".

Asked why Matic became available, Mourinho said: "It depends on what is happening or what was happening behind doors and we don't know".

"A word that I like is confidence, they played with confidence and played football".

During the closing stages of the contest, chances were few and far between but with three minutes left, United capped off a relatively comfortable afternoon with a third goal from Martial, who found the bottom corner after collecting a pass from Mkhitaryan. "I have better conditions to deliver a better season than my first one". "I hope Jose plays him up front with Rashford".

Crerand believes so and if United start well against West Ham United on Sunday and continue to prosper in a fixture list that doesn't throw up the best teams early on, confidence will soar. The only thing I know is that with Chelsea's money I brought him to Stamford Bridge because I thought he was a player with special qualities, and since I left I always felt he could be a ideal player for us. West Ham were on the receiving end in a game that ultimately ended 4-0.

"It is not because I have always done it (won the league title in his second season) that I am going to do it again", Mourinho said.

Asked what United still need to add to this squad this summer, Neville said: "I'd name a player similar to Arjen Robben - a wide player".

'I had players coming from different leagues to the Premier League and normally it is not easy.

In the last five head to head records, these two teams had met in English Premier League, English Carabao Cup and English FA Cup.
