Well it wasn’t pretty, but Manchester United picked up another vital three points in the Premier League race. The win makes it five out of six in the division for the Red Devils, and who else scored but Romelu Lukaku? The Belgian beast just keeps on hitting the target.
The 24-year-old scored his eighth goal of the season at St Mary’s Stadium on Saturday afternoon, as Jose Mourinho’s men kept the pressure up on Manchester City.
As a whole, it was an extremely tough encounter and the 1-0 scoreline could have been oh so different on another day. But, you could see what it meant to Lukaku at full-time, his celebrations paint the picture of what a difficult game it was.

How can you be a Manchester United fan and not absolutely love Lukaku? He’s proven his worth on so many occasions already, and the scary thing is that he’s only going to get better and better as a player.
He’s an instinctive finisher who knows where the back of the net us, but his all-round game is far better than I expected. I cannot wait to see this lad keep flourishing under Mourinho – and hopefully, we see a similar celebration at the end of the season.
