West Ham striker Hernandez struggling at facing old club Man Utd

West Ham have, of course, already signed Javier Hernandez and although the Mexican is a proven goalscorer in the Premier League, he won't lift the Irons to new heights on his own.

Madrid dominated proceedings against United for the large part, but Mourinho's men can take plenty of positives away from the game: Fellaini's influence, Romelu Lukaku scoring, Matic looking right at home in midfield and the fact that, despite being outclassed, they should have taken the game to extra time.

Watford have had four of their Premier League games moved for television coverage in October and November.

The gaffer: Slaven Bilic - The Croatian enjoyed a fine debut campaign with West Ham as he guided the Hammers to a seventh place finish in their final season at Upton Park.

"I think we have the squad, the players and the quality to be able to do something good, but I think a lot of other teams also have great players and great squads, so we need to be calm and work hard", he told the club's official website.

I think we will be better off for having had a season at the London Stadium now and I hope our form improves there, although we won't find this out until our first home game in mid-September. But with the fans behind him and a decent looking squad, West Ham's Premier League rivals should be way more anxious than the Croatian manager.

West Ham forked out £16million to Bayer Leverkusen to bring Hernandez back to England this summer.

'The police are not going to throw me out of England because I don't have a work permit, ' Bilic said.

West Ham United should consider swooping for the Everton target.

"I am very happy and glad, it's the best way to come back and open at Old Trafford. I want to do even better than I did in Manchester". Very experienced. They know how to play these games.
