Manchester United Football Club suffered yet another poor loss, as Jose Mourinho’s men looked toothless against Liverpool.
The game finished 3-1, which quite frankly flatters the Red Devils, who were second best throughout. Chance creation was by far the biggest problem. The midfield deserve some heavy criticism for that, but I always like to see my striker working hard, and trying to get into the best positions.
For that, the blame has to go on Romelu Lukaku’s rather broad shoulders. Once again, he didn’t get himself involved into the game whatsoever, and when the football was headed in his direction, it’d bounce off him more often than not.
It’s all well and good if you’re scoring goals and winning football matches, but it’s highlighted much more when you’re losing – whether you like it or not.
Lukaku just looks like a man bereft of confidence, particularly in games against the top six – against whom the Belgian has a horrendous record. From here, I’m just not sure where we’ll go with Lukaku leading our line, which is damning considering he cost £75million.
As you’d imagine, the United fans were less than kind to Lukaku on social media, as the Red Devils began to vent their frustrations towards the 25-year-old.
