Jose Mourinho insisted that his 'feet are on the ground' after Manchester United opened the season with a four-goal demolition of West Ham at Old Trafford. 

Mourinho's biggest Premier League win as United manager — and the club's biggest on the opening weekend in 11 years — will only raise expectations that he can deliver the title in his second season.

But the Portuguese coach refused to get carried away after United romped to victory, inspired by two-goal Romelu Lukaku and Nemanja Matic on their home debuts.

'We start the second season with a very good performance at home,' said Mourinho. 'We had many players on the pitch with a very good game and we have reasons to be optimistic.

'For me, years and years of experience and experience in the Premier League, my feet are on the ground and I am calm.

'Last season we were also top of the league in the first match (a 3-1 win at Bournemouth) and we finished sixth, so this means nothing.

'It just means we played well and confidence levels will be high and now our challenge is to keep these confidence levels. I think we can do better than last season.'

Lukaku added to his goal in the UEFA Super Cup against Real Madrid by scoring in either half to make it 11 goals in his last 11 games against West Ham.

'To play in front of such a crowd is a dream come true,' said the Belgium striker. 

Slaven Bilic urged his players to put the setback behind them after West Ham lost on the opening weekend for the 11th time, a Premier League record.

'We can't lose our confidence no matter how bad this result is for us,' said Bilic.

'We're not just going to forget about this game and say it didn't happen. But it is our obligation to pick ourselves up and prepare for the second game against Southampton.'
