Manchester United fans have every right to be happy with Romelu Lukaku’s performance vs Crystal Palace as it was a goalscoring one.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer‘s men continued their march on for the top four race as they managed to get all three points at Selhurst Park.
Lukaku has often been criticised this season despite scoring over 20 goals in his debut campaign.
Nonetheless, under Solskjaer it seems the Belgian is starting to find his feet once more.
Romelu managed to score a brace which helped United feel comfortable as they cruised through a relatively easy fixture.
Lukaku's done very well tonight. Looks more confident. Tidy finish. Big, big goal for Manchester United.

Dreadful miss earlier but a great finish there. Placed it perfectly. Good lad. Brilliant run from Shaw to create it. Such an important goal for us. It’s going to be tough tonight.

With Marcus Rashford being the man of the moment, Lukaku was banished to the back of every Red Devils thought.
The Englishman showed plenty of mobility and determination whilst adding a clinical nature to his game.
It seemed impossible for Romelu to work his way into the side once more but he’s made a big case for himself tonight.
With some supporters concerned due to the amount of injuries the first team are currently experiencing, it was important Manchester United not only grabbed the win but also scored the first goal.
If Lukaku continues to keep up his performances, there’s no doubt he’ll unseat Rashford or he’ll find himself playing alongside the youngster.
