Romelu Lukaku scored a brace on his debut for Manchester United in a comfortable 2-0 win against West Ham on Sunday at Old Trafford.   

Lukaku joined United over the summer for a fee that could rise to £90 million and it took him just 35 minutes to open his account for his new club.

As United broke Marcus Rashford shaped to pass across to Henrikh Mkhitaryan but he instead slipped it through to Lukaku who slotted it past Joe Hart.

After the break he doubled United's lead as he rose highest to head home a free-kick from Mkhitaryan.

And the Armenian made it two assists for the day a few minutes from time as he played in substitute Anthony Martial with a beautiful first-time pas.

The Frenchman made no mistake as he calmly put the ball under Hart and the England goalkeeper didn't cover himself in glory as he failed to get to a Pogba effort from range as United went top of the Premier League with a comfortable four-goal victory.
