‘A classy finish’, Manchester United fans praise forward’s display vs Huddersfield

Romelu Lukaku

Manchester United were delighted with the performance of Romelu Lukaku after he scored the opener in his side’s 2-0 Premier League win over Huddersfield Town on Saturday afternoon.

The Terriers put in a number of crunching challenges to restrict United through the first-half, though the club were unlucky to have not received a penalty for a challenge on Scott McTominay.

United had been playing more or less through the middle during the first period, but the plan to go wider in the second half worked wonders with Juan Mata offering the perfect cross from the left which Lukaku slotted home from close-range.

Lukaku has received plenty of criticism from the fans and ex-players of late, but he had still had a good season under Jose Mourinho, contributing his 18th goal (excluding European Super Cup) of the campaign in the triumph over the Terriers.

The Belgian has his flaws in terms of his first touch and inability to find the scoresheet against the bigger clubs, but the blame could be equally shared by his teammates with the service often being limited versus the elite sides.
