Manchester United fans thrilled with Romelu Lukaku’s performance against Manchester City

Manchester United fans were thrilled with Romelu Lukaku’s impressive performance against Manchester City.

The Belgian had been in brilliant form all night, linking up the play well, getting into dangerous positions, showcasing incredible hold off play and finding a goal for himself, he also hit the crossbar with an excellent finish in the second-half, rattling the bar.

He gave Man United the lead in the first-half as headed the ball past Man City’s goalkeeper, Ederson, and found the back of the net from a stunning angle, proving he has what it takes to lead the line.

Here’s what supporters on social media had to say about his performance.

He has started off the new season the right way and after some critics believed he didn’t have the quality to play for Man United, Lukaku has shown that he hopes to take over from Zlatan Ibrahimovic, with the big Swede scoring 28 goals across all competitions last season.

Mourinho was trying new tactics as he played Lukaku together with Rashford, but it seems like he’s found a genuine option ahead of the new campaign as the pair thrived alongside each other, showcasing a brilliant partnership even though they haven’t played together previously, causing problems for City’s defence.
