Manchester United fans react to Romelu Lukaku’s debut against LA Galaxy

Manchester United’s pre-season tour is underway with a comfortable 5-2 victory over MLS side, LA Galaxy. This was the day where Romelu Lukaku made his Red Devils debut, as he played the duration of the second half against David Beckham’s former employers.

It was excellent to see our new man in action for the first time, although he probably should have scored with his first touch – but for an excellent save from the opposing keeper to deny him.

After that, we saw some nice touches from the 24-year-old, as well as some excellent hold-up play which is exactly what you’d expect from a man of his stature.

As a partnership, he seemed to work very nicely alongside Anthony Martial. It was a lovely blend of pace and power, and going forward, I’d love to see more of this in competitive fixtures.

Alright, it would have been nice to see the big man get on the scoresheet, but they’ll be far more important games for him to do exactly that. On the whole, it was a good debut – but at least he now has some minutes under his belt, and he’ll be learning exactly what the manager will want from him this season.

Following the game, the United fans took to Twitter to talk about the performance of our new £75million man.
