‘That is brilliant’, Manchester United fans react to striker’s performance vs Derby

Manchester United supporters were pleased with the impact of Romelu Lukaku during Friday’s 2-0 win over Derby County in the FA Cup. The Belgium international had missed the previous league outing versus Everton with a head injury, but he returned to first-team action with a standout performance.

The Red Devils struggled to breakthrough the Rams defence owing to the impressive showing of their goalkeeper and some poor finishing, but Lukaku’s entry in the second period helped to change the fortunes. The 24-year-old provided the assist for Jesse Lingard’s goal in the dying stages of the game before popping up with a goal of his own to assure United’s progress to the fourth round of the famous old competition.

With his strike, Lukaku has made it 16 goals in his maiden United season, and this is a very reasonable tally considering we are only past the halfway stage of the competition. The Belgian has been often made the scapegoat for United’s failure up front, but most of it could be put to the poor service in and around him.

Lukaku looks on course for another 20-goal season, and he is likely to prove influential in the coming months as United look to stabilise their second place in the top-flight whilst competing for honours in the FA Cup and Champions League.
