United opening win "means nothing" yet says Mourinho

Nemanja Matic

Perhaps conscious of criticism of his tactical approach as negative, Mourinho could not resist noting the way his team had finished the game with two late goals.

Encouraged by the adoring Old Trafford crowd, Matic displayed a fine range of passes from neat little flicks to long-range rockets that found their target 40 yards away. He knows sometimes strikers can play very well for the team without scoring goals. Although the pair make up the two in a 4-2-3-1, there is no doubt that it is the Frenchman who has been given the licence he craves to go forwards. "West Ham United simply could not live with them and, in the end, were fortunate it was only 4-0".

Pogba scored the fourth goal from 25 meters out in the 90th minute.

The manager and player duo made beautiful music together at Chelsea, and now reunited, they are expected to flourish together once again.

And Mourinho revealed Lindelof needed time to settle in, just as Chelsea legend Ricardo Carvalho did when he first arrived at Stamford Bridge.

"The balance of the team is the main thing and we need some new players to bring some new energy".

West Ham have had an excellent summer on the transfer front, bringing in the likes of Joe Hart and Javier Hernandez, but that defeat has dampened the enthusiasm somewhat.

"But I didn't disturb him, I didn't disturb Chelsea".

"It was a really important game for us to start well and win the three points against a good side", he told Sky Sports. It is very hard not to see him not bettering that in a red shirt.

Whether it was his strength, his link-up play or his finishing, he was just unplayable. Bakayoko is currently out injured, leaving Chelsea with Cesc Fabregas and N'Golo Kante as central midfielders.

There were also whispers about whether Mourinho is passing his sell-by-date, that somehow his methods, though not quite outdated, were being slowly confined to the past, while more progressive coaches emerged.

It was a hugely impressive opening day display and Meulensteen reckons Jose Mourinho - in his second year in charge - has assembled a squad well capable of mounting a charge for top spot.

United have not been in title contention since the retirement of Alex Ferguson with the Premier League trophy in his hands in 2013.

United's performance was brimming with confidence and lent some justification to the pre-season optimism around the club.

"Sometimes you must accept this crazy transfer market", he said.

Man of the match.
