Most of all, he hopes that he can repeat what he has done at his previous clubs and win the league in his second season.
Ahead of their Premier League opener, Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho is confident his side can maintain his ideal second-season record.
West Ham's main summer signing will be a familiar face to the Old Trafford crowd.
'Their home form has been embarrassing - 26 goals at home last season and 10 draws.
"It is hard to say what our chances in the league are but we are setting out to be on top", the midfielder, a five-time Premier League champion with United, said.
Bailly and Jones missed Tuesday's UEFA Super Cup defeat to Real Madrid through suspension, but their continental ban does not impact domestic matches. Benfica and Portuguese league is not the challenge the Premier League is week in, week out. West Ham are a stronger side than they were last term.
Luke Shaw, Ashley Young and Marcos Rojo remain sidelined, but Eric Bailly and Phil Jones are both available after European suspensions. Meanwhile, Mourinho praised Lukaku after the match against Real Madrid, and he is likely to start upfront. The 35-year-old's social media presence gives a sneak peek into his speedy recovery and it looks like he will make a return much sooner than expected.
"That isn't an ambition when you've spent the money that's been spent and amassed the players that Mourinho has now amassed". His duties last season were dispersed between defence and attack.

United's second top scorer in the league last season was Juan Mata with six, while Marcus Rashford, Paul Pogba and the now departed Wayne Rooney each managed five. Hernandez is one of four potential West Ham debutants, along with goalkeeper Joe Hart, forward Marko Arnautovic and full-back Pablo Zabaleta. The London Stadium hosting the World Athletics Championships means Bilic's side play United, Southampton and Newcastle away from home before Huddersfield's visit on Sep 11. West Ham may struggle on Sunday but Hernandez will have a point to prove against his former club.
Both sides have used hostile rhetoric, with President Donald Trump threatening "fire and fury" on the North. That prompted a new round of United Nations economic sanctions, which angered Mr Kim's regime.
However, Arsenal and Liverpool could well have something to say about that, especially if the Wembley factor derails Spurs. Even though they showcased most of their flaws on Friday, you can't fault the spirit of Arsene Wenger's men.
Klopp also said he had "nothing to say about this" when asked what Coutinho had said to him regarding the Barcelona interest. Miguel Britos equalised for Liverpool in the injury time of the game to rescue a point for Watford .
The latest sell-off was the most severe yet, amounting to the biggest single-day drop for the stock market in almost three months. Major U.S. indices had posted record highs in recent weeks. "Markets are looking for any reason at all for a reset.
Quite surprisingly, Apple employees were split nearly evenly with 51 to 49 employees favouring Google's decision to fire Damore . In a recent Blind survey , majority of the employees from these firms voted against Google's decision to fire Damore .
The 30-year old put his side 2-1 ahead of Arsenal in the 29th minute after a goal from Okazaki had cancelled Lacazette's opener. Olivier Giroud has been linked with a move away from Arsenal with the arrival of fellow Frenchman Alexandre Lacazette from Lyon.
A source close to Mr Davis said the papers would highlight the British teams were "on the front foot" in the negotiations. The first of these will set out proposals for a new customs agreement, it said.
