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.

Eric Bailly and Phil Jones, the centre-back pairing against West Ham, did nothing to suggest they won't start again at Swansea next week.

He says he wants one more player "to come from the sides" - the suggestion being he is still after a Gareth Bale or Ivan Perisic type.

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.
