Manchester United v West Ham United

Romelu Lukaku is set to make his Old Trafford debut on Sunday when Manchester United entertain Slaven Bilic's West Ham.

The Belgian international, who could cost United in the region of £90million, scored three goals in pre-season before bagging another in the Super Cup defeat to Real Madrid.

Jose Mourinho has never lost an opening Premier League game as a manager - winning seven and drawing one - while United have not lost at home to West Ham in the last ten years.

Nemanja Matic, another summer capture, is also expected to start but Mourinho has a host of injury absentees, with Luke Shaw, Ashley Young and Marcos Rojo all on the sidelines.

The Hammers are likely to hand a debut to Javier Hernandez - the 29-year-old could face his former club for whom he scored 37 goals in a five-year spell.

On loan goalkeeper Joe Hart will start in goal but Bilic still has a long injury list to contend with, as Michail Antonio, Andy Carroll, Manuel Lanzini, Cheikhou Kouyate and Diafra Sakh are all missing.

The two sides met three times last season- twice in the league and once in the League Cup - with United winning two of those games, although this fixture ended in a 1-1 draw.
