Lukaku called his club debut for the Red Devils a '"dream come true", while manager Jose Mourinho felt it was the ideal way to get his new star striker confident for the season ahead.
"This season, when I got the call that Matic wants to play for me and for Manchester United, and he can make it happen, I thought he's the flawless player for me".
Goals by Ben Davies and Alli himself sealed the Tottenham win with Kyle Walker-Peters named man of the match on his Premier League debut.
Mourinho has indicated that he wants a fourth signing before the transfer window shuts on August 31, as he needs a winger to bolster his squad. "I can not tell you because sometimes I try to prepare a celebration but right now I'm not thinking about it". They have two players for every position and that is why I am suggesting they will be the main title contenders alongside Manchester City.
At least 30 children die in Indian hospital in two days
A hospital in India has been accused of failing to provide enough oxygen after 60 children died on its wards in five days. There was panic at the hospital with relatives trying to support staff using manual breathing bags, local media say.
Jose Mourinho has made several changes to the side that lost 2-1 to Real Madrid in the Super Cup last week, with Eric Bailly, Daley Blind, Phil Jones, Juan Mata and Marcus Rashford the beneficiaries in a 4-2-3-1 formation. "We have certainly improved the squad, we look stronger, we are a year further ahead with the manager and his staff, we are in a better place than we were last year, so things are on the up." said the defensive midfielder. "There are obviously bigger competitions than others, but we will certainly be fighting on all fronts to win as much as we can.".
Since Mourinho's arrival money has been spent endlessly at Old Trafford, with Paul Pogba returning to become the most expensive player in world football last summer, before striker Romelu Lukaku was signed for £75million in July. "It is a disastrous result for us and the worst scenario that could have happened". "We are very low, the players feel bad and so do I".
Injuries to the likes of Marcos Rojo and Luke Shaw will also give Mourinho headaches temporarily. The performance and the levels of confidence is what means a lot to me. I'm sure, together with the fans, the staff and the players, we can achieve something great this year and it's up to us to work hard and to believe that we can be successful. A brilliant Ryan Giggs free-kick put United in control in the first half before three goals in 13 minutes added gloss to the scoreline.
