Manchester United fans couldn’t hide their delight with Romelu Lukaku after his performance vs Crystal Palace in the Premier League.
The Belgian was crucial in the club’s 3-2 comeback win, scoring his side’s second goal and equaliser after an impressive second half.
United fell 2-0 down as Palace scored quickly at the start of either half but once Chris Smalling scored the first goal for his team, Lukaku managed to grab the all important second.
The striker’s goal helped provide the platform for his team to chase a winner rather than just an equaliser and they deservedly came away with all three points.
Romelu won plenty of plaudits for his performance vs Chelsea last time out and managed to keep up his good form when facing the London side.
6 goals for unintelligent Lukaku in 2018 meanwhile intelligent Morata with PhD in the Striking Department has kept 11 straight clean sheet and is still yet to score in 2018.
Tears running down my cheek

Brilliant comeback by United. Thought Lukaku deserved particular credit for second half performance

The patience Lukaku showed there was great. He waited and waited until he had a clear route to goal, then took his chance. Quality goal.

Lukaku was great again imo, held the ball up very well once again, scored a goal too, did such a fantastic job for us.

Much was made of Zlatan Ibrahimovic‘s re-signing and what it could potentially mean for Romelu Lukaku but it hasn’t worked out as most fans may have anticipated.
Supporters expected the Swede to challenge the former Everton man for a first team berth but it couldn’t have been further from the truth.
Of course Ibrahimovic has had some heavy injuries to deal with but it’s fair to say even if he was fit he wouldn’t be able to dethrone Lukaku in this kind of form.
With Liverpool on the horizon now the Red Devils are going to desperately need their main man to step up once more and potentially win the game for them against the third placed side.
