A 4-0 win against West Ham is probably seen as a routine under Sir Alex but it’s hard to not get carried away with today’s performance. After 3 seasons and 3 managers, it seems like we finally have a team capable of winning the elites. Although we’ve won 3 last season – that if you count Community Shield as a trophy – our main target is always the Premier League, Champions League and FA Cup.
I haven’t seen anything this good since Sir Alex retired. Not from Moyes and Van Gaal. Not even from Mourinho.
Matic and Pogba, the new midfield axis, were predictably effective. Big lad Lukaku will score a lot of goals, while Martial and Rashford will indeed help scoring some as well. At the back, Baily was very comfortable playing with Jones, and De Gea will definitely continue to perform some good saves.
Long season ahead of us, but that was a very comfortably good start. Let the good times roll!
