Manchester United fans react to Romelu Lukaku’s super display against City

Manchester United enjoyed derby day success out in Houston, Texas this morning, and it’s always nice to get one over your fiercest rivals. The star of the show? Without a doubt, Romelu Lukaku. The 24-year-old is already showing his sublime quality.

He was an absolute joy to watch right from the off. His hold up play was superb, as was his ability to make the right run and create the space for others. Pace, power, and a footballing brain – the perfect Jose Mourinho striker.

The Belgian opened the scoring with a cool piece of play just after the 35th minute. His mate Paul Pogba played an excellent through ball into his path, before Lukaku made the keeper look rather silly, then powering the ball into the back of the net.

He also had another chance in the second half. The ball fell nicely to him on his left foot, he took the shot, but unfortunately, it rattled back off the crossbar. Anyway, it was a performance to be pleased with and it definitely bodes well.

As you’d imagine, the Reds all over social media were delighted with the excellent all-round display, and took to Twitter to express their delights.
