Well, it feels nice to get back to winning ways, eh, Reds? Manchester United looked comfortable (for the most part) during their 2-0 victory over Burnley, as the pressure on Jose Mourinho was eased somewhat.
The star of the show was undoubtedly Romelu Lukaku, with the big man striking twice in the first-half to put the visitors in a commanding position. With that said, on another day, the Belgian could well have had another two or three if he as at his brilliant best.
Anyway, the brace was good enough for Lukaku to be included in Garth Crooks’ BBC Team of the Week, and rightly so. For me, it wasn’t just his goals that was impressive, I look at the build-up play, the ability to hold the ball up and bring others into the game, while giving the rest of the team a real breather and an outlet.
It’s the Lukaku we’ve become accustomed to over the last twelve months. Strong, a real workaholic, great in the air and just a real presence up top. If he can work on that consistency, we could easily have a 30+ goal-a-season man on our hands; that’s just how good he is.
