Manchester United began the Premier League campaign with a well deserved 4-0 mauling of rivals Chelsea at Old Trafford on Sunday.

The Reds were quick of the mark with Rashford converting a first-half penalty after a clumsy foul by Kurt Zouma.  Chelsea were certainly no pushovers and the Blues hit the woodwork twice in the first half from Tammy Abraham and Emerson.

The second half saw the Red Devils run rampant with Paul Pogba taking the stage with two assists. Andreas Perrera had earlier crossed for Anthony Martial to have a free tap-in for the second goal before Pogba made the pass of the game for the third goal.

The French midfielder received a pass from the right before finding Marcus Rashford with a sumptuous pass. Rashford duely buried the ball beyond onrushing Blues stopper Kepa.

That was not the end as Pogba once again was involved in the fourth goals supplying the pass for new signing Daniel James to score via a deflection on his debut.

Daniel James was impressive when he got on the pitch and Manchester United have a gem on their hands. The former Swansea winger is expected to play a crucial role for the club this season.

He has all the traces of a young Cristiano Ronaldo as he is blessed with raw pace and dribbling ability.

During his time at Swansea, James regularly terrorized opposing defences which is evident in the FA Cup clash against Manchester City where he was sensational.

It would be up to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to nurture the talent to fulfill his potentials. There have been several players that had been touted as the next Ronaldo but failed to succeed at Old Trafford.

Gabriel Obertan is a popular example as he failed to live up to his initial promise and was subsequently shipped out of the club.
