Lukaku joined United over the summer for a fee that could rise to £90 million and it took him just 35 minutes to open his account for his new club.
By scoring twice here, with Anthony Martial and Paul Pogba's late strike crowning a 4-0 victory, Lukaku not only extended his own healthy scoring record against the Hammers but eased fears of the same old problems rearing their head.
Mata was through again shortly after following a lovely looped pass over the top by Pogba, but the Spaniard's square pass for Lukaku at the far post was cut out.
RCB - Chris Smalling: You'd expect more centre-backs to be given opportunities by José Mourinho this season, with the Portuguese testing out a new 3-5-2 formation in some of the preparation fixtures and at the start of the UEFA Super Cup.

Mourinho expectedly gives the Old Trafford debut to Romelu Lukaku, spearheading an attacking lineup that includes fringe starters Marcus Rashford and Juan Mata.

Lukaku scored either side of half-time with two well executed efforts.
And the Argentinian paid a heavy price for that foul for, when Mkhitaryan floated over the consequent free-kick, that man Lukaku ghosted in front of Masuaku to nod home his second goal of the afternoon.
But there there was to be yet more Manchester misery for West Ham in the final three minutes as Mkhitaryan invited Martial to race behind the visitors' defence and calmly slot past the helplessly exposed Hart.
Paul Pogba has now scored 34 league goals since 2012/13; 16 of them have come from outside the box. Great from Pogba, awful from Hart. His ability to get the out of the defensive third so quickly could prove to be crucial for Mourinho's counter-attacking style, and should be given a chance to shine in the Premier League.
