Daniel James celebrates flawless start to life at Manchester United

Rashford says United's fitness is far better than it was at this stage last summer

The Red Devils pulled off a stunning 4-0 win in their first Premier League game, with goals from Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial, and another new signing Daniel James.

Solskjaer won his first eight games as caretaker boss last season, following the sacking of Jose Mourinho, and despite supporters' concerns that United had not done enough in the transfer window to challenge for a top-four finish, he saw his team make a rampant start to the new Premier League campaign by inflicting a 4-0 hammering upon Chelsea in Frank Lampard's first game as manager.

De Gea was at fault with a series of high-profile errors towards the end of last season, but the Spaniard - handed the captain's armband in the absence of Ashley Young - looked back to his old self as he beat away another two powerful drives from Emerson after the break.

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer admitted his side had their moments of fortune throughout the contest, particularly in the first half. He and Scott McTominay couldn't get on the ball and when they did, they lost it. Pogba's second half was superb. Maguire showed his presence to outmuscle Abraham on the edge of the United box and set off a flowing counter-attack that ended with Martial bundling the ball home at the far post from Andreas Pereira's cross. Had it been Hazard entering the fray, United would nearly certainly have assigned a player to shadow him closely, but they did not make any changes to deal with Pulisic because there was no need. He needs to find a way to win quickly, even though Eden Hazard has gone to Real Madrid, while N'Golo Kante, Antonio Rudiger and Willian are not fully fit.

Capped off a dream debut at Old Trafford with a goal, and his celebration showed exactly how much it meant to him.

How do you think United's new players fared against Chelsea?

But they collapsed in the second half, making it a miserable first Premier League game in the dug-out for Chelsea legend Lampard. "With Maguire it can be a very good partnership". Romelu Lukaku is now at Inter Milan, and United is really without a true No. 9.

James made it a day to remember by adding his side's fourth goal just nine minutes after coming on as a substitute in his competitive debut.

In the first half Paul Pogba's display summed up the vacuum present in United's midfield.
