Man United fans were delighted with Marcus Rashford’s performance on Sunday

Manchester United couldn’t have started the English Premier League in finer fashion than on Sunday, thrashing West Ham United 4-0 in front of their own fans at Old Trafford.

It was a day that United’s new signings Romelu Lukaku and Nemanja Matic grabbed the headlines with supreme performances but the truth is Jose Mourinho’s men throughout the team were excellent, with some of the club’s homegrown talent shining just as brightly.

Many of the plaudits went to young Marcus Rashford, the 19-year-old was a constant threat throughout the match until he was eventually replaced by Anthony Martial.

It was Rashford who provided the assist for Lukaku’s opener, his neat little through ball bamboozling the Hammers defence.

The teenager also went mighty close to grabbing a goal for himself after creating space in the box and unleashing a fierce shot that beat Joe Hart before cannoning off the inside of the post.

If he can produce these kind of performances on a consistent basis then he’s going to have quite the season.

Manchester United fans were delighted with his impact and took to Twitter to share their thoughts on the performance…
