A Marouane Fellaini double either side of half-time followed, before Romelu Lukaku put the icing on the cake with 5 minutes to go.
The Belgian’s strike marked yet another goal in a scintillating start to life at Old Trafford following his summer switch from Everton, with some of the best statistics surrounding his form with the Red Devils outlined below:
