Manchester United fans react to Romelu Lukaku’s performance vs Burnley

Manchester United Football Club got a much-needed victory under their belt this evening, with the pressure being eased on manager Jose Mourinho.

The Red Devils beat Burnley 2-0 at Turf Moor, with both goals coming from Romelu Lukaku. One, a brilliant header after a teasing ball from Alexis Sanchez, the other, a tap-in following some calamitous defending. At the end of the day, they all count.

I don’t think it’s a stretch to say the striker could have had a further two at the very least, particularly the one where he rounded the goalkeeper but couldn’t apply the finish.

It wasn’t just his output in front of goal that was impressive. It was the hold-up play, the passing, the vision. It was a mature, complete outing from the £75million man. One that we became accustomed to during the World Cup.

The scary thing is that he’s still young and learning all the time. His two finishes today put him level on Premier League goals with a certain Didier Drogba; whom Lukaku idolised when growing up.

As you’d imagine, the Old Trafford faithful were delighted with Lukaku on the whole, but you have every right to be upset with the fact that he didn’t have a hat-trick…
