Lukaku: Injured Man United star key to 'chasing Man City'

Lukaku: Injured Man United star key to 'chasing Man City'

The 24-year-old has been at the centre of attention surrounding Manchester United recently, with fans creating a controversial song for their £76m striker that has since been banned.

That's based on the fact Mourinho didn't let him take a penalty - and that Lukaku has missed several chances in big games, and seen his goal scoring record dry up in recent weeks - when United have dropped points to boot.

Lukaku scored twice in Belgium's draw with Mexico on Friday, and some United fans are calling for Ibra to play behind him as a number ten when he makes his long-awaited return.

His barren streak stretched back to September and coincided with a hard period for United in the league but Lukaku never doubted himself.

After the game he said: "At a young age I've achieved something great like this which is really good but there is a lot of work to be done and I'm relishing the challenge".

The Red Devils started their second Premier League season under Jose Mourinho brilliantly, winning three of their first six games by a margin of 4 goals.

"When you face a team like us it's hard for opponents".

Among those displaced are four young women who live directly beneath the apartment that collapsed. Instead, they were at the Denton Police Department making a noise complaint about the party.

"I was born to score", the striker proclaimed.

Lukaku failed to score in a goalless stalemate with Liverpool at Anfield before the Belgian striker continued his drought in a 1-0 victory over Tottenham.

"I am like a leopard in the box".

"Lately we haven't performed like we did at the start of the season", Lukaku told Sky Sports.

"I think when I signed everybody was asking questions and I think starting so well surprised a few people", Lukaku said.

Now, it seems that when last season's star, Zlatan Ibrahimovic is back, Mourinho will consider his options and it seems that Lukaku should be anxious. "We can create more chances and goals".
