Mourinho says Man United want Zlatan to stay

Mourinho says Man United want Zlatan to stay”

United begin their Premier League campaign against West Ham at Old Trafford on Sunday, aiming to build on lifting the EFL Cup and Europa League last season, while improving considerably upon a sixth-place finish last time around.

Nemanja Matic has admitted that he was "very happy" with his own display after helping Manchester United to a 4-0 win over West Ham United on his competitive league debut for the club.

His second a header inside the six yard box from Henrikh Mkhitaryan's cross.

Anthony Martial and Paul Pogba also struck late on as United outshone all their rivals over the weekend to top the fledgling table, leading manager Jose Mourinho to salute their new-found confidence.

He said: "The big word this season used at United is excitement and there was plenty of that today".

Gary Neville has piled the pressure on his former club Manchester United by insisting they must go all out for the Premier League title this season.

West Ham were one of the 10 teams who got a point at Old Trafford last season, a statistic that cost United any chance of challenging Chelsea for the title.

Instinctively, Lukaku made his rampant run behind Zabaleta, Reid and Ogbonna and, although his 12-yard shot splintered Hart's right-hand upright, the ball simply flew across goal into the opposite corner to leave an Old Trafford crowd - post-Wayne Rooney - saluting their new scoring sensation. "I think Victor is a little bit of that and he's going to have that time".

The Mexican global said he would respect his former club, but vowed to give maximum effort to help the Hammers start the season with a win.

"I could see when I first came to United that we needed a Matic-type player", he said. We like to play, we like Premier League, we like the opening match.

United took control early on and never relinquished their grip, looking a formidable force with new arrivals Lukaku and Nemanja Matic bedding in well.

"The importance for me about this player, who is a really good player, a top player, very important for our team".

Lukaku, who also scored against Real Madrid in last week's Super Cup, netted 25 times in the league for Everton last season and looked equally deadly following his move to United. I don't think the game was 4-0. That should give them the confidence to prevent any potential upset on Sunday.
