Manchester United Football Club made it two wins in two to kick off the season, with Jose Mourinho’s team putting in a supremely impressive display against a resilient Swansea City.
Amongst the goalscorers was Romelu Lukaku, who netted his third Premier League goal in just two outings so far. The Belgian beast had a quiet afternoon overall, but it was nice to see him still scoring.
One of the best strikers to ever grace the game, Thierry Henry, has had his say on Lukaku’s display. Although he was full of praise for the former Everton striker, he did find one main issue that he must improve on.
Henry reckons that for all the goals Lukaku will score, his movement needs some work.
‘That’s [movement] something he needs to bring to his game. We all know what he can do.‘ Henry is quoted as saying by The Metro.
‘If you want to take it to another level at Man Utd – four goals in three official games is remarkable – it is about getting better. He will work on it, he’s with special players and he’s with [Jose] Mourinho.
‘Mourinho will help him to develop that side of the game. We all know he has the one thing that’s most important, when you feed him in the box, he will score.’
In all honesty, this is something I would agree with. There were times when the 24-year-old made the wrong run. Whether that’s due to the fact that he’s still learning to play alongside his new teammates remains to be seen, but it will come, over time.
I guess the most important thing is the fact that he was bought to find the back of the net, and so far he has proven himself in that regard. All that extra stuff will come as his playing style develops and his familiarity in Mourinho’s system grows.
