Manchester United fans were delighted to see Romelu Lukaku continue his stunning goalscoring form against Southampton on Saturday afternoon.
The Belgian striker scored his 8th goal in 8 games for the club in the 20th minute.
Unsurprisingly, Man United fans are quickly falling in love with their £75million summer signing.
Lukaku is just too powerful.

Lukaku’s goal was one of the only highlights for United in the first half, and it’s that clinical finishing ability, though he required the rebound to beat Fraser Forster, that United lacked last season.
Robin van Persie was the last United player to win the Premier League Golden Boot. Lukaku is in the race to do so after six in the opening six league games.
Other United fans commented on the United away end continuing to sing the controversial Romelu Lukaku chant despite the players’ words in midweek asking Reds to stop chanting it.
Lukaku asks the fans not to sing the song. The away end sings it anyway. Nice one lads.

United fans singing the Lukaku chant again even though he’s explicitly said they shouldn’t is utterly depressing. 2017 is the new 1970’s…
