‘He needs the Mkhitaryan treatment’, Man United fans slam forward’s performance vs Man City

Romelu Lukaku

Manchester United supporters were critical over the performance of Romelu Lukaku following Sunday’s 2-1 derby defeat to Manchester City. The Belgium international had not scored against any of the top-six coming into the game, and he struggled to find the cutting edge to his play once more.

Lukaku linked up play with the likes of Anthony Martial and Jesse Lingard during the course of the first-half, but he mostly struggled in the second period, until he received a sitter from three yards. City goalkeeper Ederson made a great effort blocking the shot, but the Belgian should have scored with the goal at his mercy.

Here are some of the reactions over his performance…


Lukaku started the season in fine fashion with 11 goals in just 10 matches, but his form has since been alarming with just two goals in the next 14 appearances. To make things worse, the Belgian was potentially at fault for both of City’s goals with the latter involving a poor right-footed clearance which allowed Nicolas Otamendi an easy sight on goal for the winner.

With Bournemouth coming up next, Mourinho should stick with the Belgian, but another poor performance could potentially see him offer an opportunity to Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who has been a regular from the substitutes’ bench.
