Manchester United fans react to stunning Romelu Lukaku performance

Manchester United Football Club secured a huge result this Sunday, with Jose Mourinho’s men coming from behind to beat Chelsea 2-1.

The game turned when Romelu Lukaku scored his first Red Devils goal against a ‘big six rival’, and his performance as a whole was absolutely wonderful to watch.

Lukaku is growing into his role as a true Manchester United #9. Not only will he score goals, but his all-round game is forever improving.

Today, he held the ball up for his teammates superbly, using his power and physicality to outmuscle Chelsea defenders. Not only that, though, he can show precision and cuteness, with a fantastic ball into Jesse Lingard to complete the turnaround.

It was a mature display from a man who’s best years are ahead of him, and a 22-goal haul in his debut season is an excellent return considering we’re only in February.

Hopefully, his first goal against a top side will further boost his confidence and we’ll see more complete displays from United’s new hero amongst the terraces. I get the feeling this lad isn’t going to stop until he wins the lot, and that only spells good news for the Red Devils.

As you’d imagine, United fans were absolutely buzzing all over social media. We’ve compiled some of the best reactions below:
