Manchester United fans have had mixed feelings on Romelu Lukaku’s performance against Real Madrid in the UEFA Super Cup.
There are big expectations on the Belgian this season after Jose Mourinho signed him from Everton for a substantial fee and every aspect of his game will come under criticism.
He missed an easy chance earlier in the game after Paul Pogba headed the ball at goal only for Navas to fumble it, with Lukaku blazing the ball over, however, he made up for himself later on as he tapped the ball in from close to find the back of the net.
Here’s what supporters on social media had to say about his performance.
Happy that Lukaku scored,do good for his confidence ,real strikers score in big games

Big goal for Lukaku after that miss. United levels behind Madrid but don't forget how good this Real team is – won countless trophies.

Herrera had read the ball from Kroos in the first-half and got himself into a dangerous position with the ability to square the ball onto Lukaku, who could have been one-on-one with Navas, but Lukaku ran over and took control of the ball even though he was in an offside position.
There are a few things which he needs to do in order to improve his game ahead of the new season and Mourinho is right the manager, who can help Lukaku get the best out of his game.
