At Old Trafford, a United side inspired by Nemanja Matic, their 40-million-pound ($52.04-million) signing from Chelsea, provided another expensive newcomer, the 75-million-pound Lukaku, with the flawless service.
Lukaku scored on his competitive debut for United in Tuesday's 2-1 UEFA Super Cup defeat to Madrid in Skopje and was named in Mourinho's starting line-up alongside Matic to make his Premier League bow against Slaven Bilic's side.
"The only thing I know is that of course with Chelsea money I brought him to Stamford Bridge because I thought he was a player with special qualities, and since I left I always thought he could be a ideal player for us, but I didn't disturb him, I didn't disturb Chelsea".
They finished off their first season under Jose Mourinho in glorious fashion, claiming the Europa League in Stockholm, but notably struggled for potency in the Premier League, slumping to sixth spot.
"Jose Mourinho wants me to be the leader and create as much as I can".
"I don't say I know the league better because I have been in this league for a long time". Collecting a short pass from Brian McClair, he launched an incredible shot over Neil Sullivan, who was off his line, and the ball dipped under the bar to register one of the most memorable goals in Premier League history.
West Ham United have made some experienced additions to their squad in the transfer window which has their fans buoyant again, following a largely disappointing season given the expectations at the club. "I can not tell you because sometimes I try to prepare a celebration but right now I'm not thinking about it". We lost two points against them last season and had similar games where we were dominated.
Injuries to the likes of Marcos Rojo and Luke Shaw will also give Mourinho headaches temporarily. "The quality that Manchester United have, the great manager they have, it's going to be tough but we have been preparing all week, we're excited, we're eager to play that game to see where we are".
"They [West Ham] were very compact, but there was more space after the first goal".
"I don't think I am in a position to be moaning and crying". That isn't an ambition when you've spent the money that's been spent and amassed the players that Mourinho has now amassed, ' he added. "[In the] next game we will start with more confidence".
When asked how he felt when he learned he would be facing United on the opening day of the season, Hernandez told Sky Sports: "I was very happy".
