Man United fans react to Romelu Lukaku’s performance against Crystal Palace

Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku has had fans on their feet since putting on the Red Devils shirt and after his Crystal Palace performance, it’ll be no different.

While some at Old Trafford expected him to put a couple past a weakened and deflated Crystal Palace side, the Belgian only managed a single goal to his name.

The striker worked tirelessly, pressuring the opposition defence and was as selfless as ever on the ball.

Manchester United boss, Jose Mourinho, has already admitted his surprise at Romelu’s goal scoring start to life at United and insisted the clinical forward’s team work is far more important than climbing up the goalscoring charts.

Either way, fans will be delighted that the left-footed footballer grabbed a deserved goal in order to keep himself in contention for the Golden Boot.

After all, the way both Manchester clubs are playing, the Premier League title may come down to goal difference once more and fans remember sourly what happened the last time that occurred.

It’s also helpful that Lukaku appears to be benefitting from a positive relationship with his team off the field, in particular Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford and of course Paul Pogba.

Pogba was quick to claim he had some part in the Belgian’s transfer from Everton and should Romelu’s goalscoring run continue, Manchester United fans will continue praising the talented pair.
