Matic, another off-season recruit from Chelsea, also impressed at the base of midfield, completing a timely interception to trigger the counter-attack that led to the first goal.
"In spite of speaking about Sakho at half-time, he was free and almost scored".
He moved to Old Trafford for £40million to become the Portuguese's third summer signing. Nemanja Matic marshalled the midfield with man-of-the-match excellence, while Romelu Lukaku looked every bit a £75m striker as he dominated West Ham's backline.
Lukaku doubled the lead with a second-half header as United romped to a 4-0 win.
"I was disappointed in the Hammers".
Beloved by the United fans (and the United hierarchy if not the coach), Martial came off the bench with a point to prove. "Strikers can play phenomenally well, but if they don't score goals, the pressure's on them", he said. "You have to adapt to a new team", he told Viasat Sport.
"He will be furious when he sees that goal".
Could it be Nemanja Matic? .
At least four of Chelsea's substitutes are not even household names in their own households, and the club's lack of depth is startling.
Anthony Martial and Paul Pogba scored in the final three minutes of normal time to leave United top of the early standings on goal difference.
Tottenham Hotspur took advantage of Jonjo Shelvey's sending off to beat Newcastle United 2-0 in the day's first match. He created 6 chances on the day-only one fewer than the whole of West Ham managed-including two assists.
"I still can't believe Chelsea have let him go", said Gary Neville. He had just 10 minutes to make his mark and did exactly that. I thought he was outstanding today. He really did look like a tall Bastian Schweinsteiger. I want to mention as well the other two new signings, [Victor] Lindelof and Lukaku. Who was merely good?
Matic was delighted to see fellow home debutant Lukaku enjoy a similarly strong outing against Slaven Bilic's side.
He scored a career-high 18 league goals last season and showed a striker's instinct to meet Christian Eriksen's far-post cross with a volley across the goalkeeper in the 61st minute. Mourinho's side won 25 aerial duels to West Ham's 15.
I am sure Lukaku would have been nervous before the game, but all that will have settled down with his first goal.
"He has apologised but that changes nothing now". On Saturday, they will be one of the first two sides in action, away at Swansea City. "They look like they've got everything". It's good to start well with three points, the season is long but we have to collect a lot of points and we've had a good start.
