‘He deserves a lot of praise,’ Man United fans delighted with forward’s performance vs Huddersfield

Manchester United supporters were pleased with the performance of Romelu Lukaku during Saturday’s 2-0 win over Huddersfield Town in the FA Cup fifth round.

Jose Mourinho’s side were not in the best of form for most of the game, but they managed to possess a threat on the counter-attack with Lukaku bagging another brace for himself.

Lukaku has now scored in each outing of this season’s FA Cup campaign, and the goals versus Huddersfield took his overall tally to 21 in 38 appearances in all competitions.



Lukaku has not received the regular service from his teammates in recent outings, but the presence of Juan Mata and Alexis Sanchez either side worked perfectly for the Belgian as they played him through in both halves.

The Belgian was expected to face competition after Zlatan Ibrahimovic returned to full fitness earlier in the campaign, but the Swede’s fitness concerns combined with his good form, have made it clear that he is the undisputed choice to lead the line.

Lukaku has yet to score against one of England’s elite clubs, but he will have another chance in the next fortnight with United due to host both Chelsea and Liverpool in the Premier League at Old Trafford.
