Abraham and Emerson struck the frame of the goal before half-time and Chelsea played some attractive football until United's powerful counter-attacking play exposed the away side's defensive weaknesses.

Paul Pogba is apparently a candidate to wear the captain's armband at Manchester United this season after displaying a "superb" attitude in pre-season.

"The players we played today, and on the bench, are the players we have". I am very curious to see the direction Frank is going to go. They then went down to the bus, where a subsequent headcount found one player - Lukaku - to be missing.

He would leave a hole the size of the Channel Tunnel if he left, because I do not see another midfielder in the Premier League that can play the pass he did for United's third goal, when he set up Marcus Rashford.

Daniel James came off the bench to score the fourth.

"Manchester United have got to start one block at a time. I do expect him to stay", he said.

In fairness, Chelsea's total team collapse is not entirely on Pulisic. Through my commitment and my desire to perform, I want to help this team achieve big things.

However, Solskjaer felt United had "got a good deal" and they were not planning to line up with a traditional targetman this season.

While he suggested Lukaku's departure was inevitable, his goals will still be missed as no one in the current squad comes close to matching his 42 goals in 96 appearances over the past two campaigns.

Lukaku, who did not take part in United's pre-season matches due to injury, was sold to Inter for a reported fee of 80 million euros ($89.60 million) on deadline day and Solskjaer said the transfer was a win-win situation for all parties concerned.

Pulisic scored two goals in exhibitions for Chelsea this summer, with both coming against Red Bull Salzburg.

He is a young kid who has had an unbelievable rise and also a lot to deal with in his personal life after his dad died just before his move to Old Trafford. "You look to the performance of Mason Mount, the performance of Tammy Abraham, you look to the performance even of [Andreas] Christensen and for matches of this dimension you need a little bit more".

Lukaku's agent Federico Pastorello was in London on Wednesday for talks with United on Inter's behalf.

UPDATE: Jose Mourinho, speaking on Sky Sports, agrees.
