Manchester United got off to a winning start in the Premier League against Chelsea, with a 4-0 win at Old Trafford.
There was plenty of pessimism about United ahead of the game, with lots of unhappiness surrounding the state of the club being run by the Glazer family, but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and his players shifted all of the negativity to one side with an impressive win over a top 6 opponent.
Frank Lampard’s first match as a Premier League manager will be one to forget and it looks like they could face problems at the back this season.
It was the perfect start and now a number of United fans are reacting to the result and performance on social media, as seen below:
Not gonna lie, I was emotional when Daniel James scored.

Impressive debut from Harry Maguire and Aaron Wan-Bissaka. #MUFC

Far from perfect and a little flattering, but what a confidence boost.
We look together and so much fitter.
And Pogba is capable of winning or losing the game at any moment with brilliance or carelessness.

United have cried out for a player like Maguire for years. Not just his ball playing ability, but his ability to apply the basics incredibly well back there. He won every header, every tackle and looked a real leader out there. I’m so happy we got him.

What a ridiculous result that is. Defended well after the break and we were utterly ruthless on the break; delicious cross from Pereira for Martial, wonderful work by Pogba for both Rashford and James' goals and Maguire was imperious.

Brilliant result – shouldn’t gloss over the issues we saw in the first half for #MUFC, but there’s at least some feel good factor back and the new signings were superb.

#mufc nowhere near their optimum today but so ruthless in dismantling Chelsea after the second goal. Wan-Bissaka superb and excellent start from Maguire. Can hear fans chanting Maguire's name as they filter through the Munich tunnel.
