“The boy can’t stop” – Man United fans excited over Lukaku’s performance on Twitter

By Dave Marshall

Romelu Lukaku scored for the second game running as the big Belgian continued to acclimatise to life as a Manchester United player. Against City on Thursday, he was excellent as the Red Devils won 2-0 comfortably and a host of United fans were in awe of his performance on popular social media platform, Twitter.

United stunned the football world after news broke out a fortnight ago that we would sign Lukaku in a mammoth £75m deal.

Lukaku looked sharp and promptly scored the opener against Pep Guardiola’s team. In the 37th minute, he chased a long Paul Pogba pass; he capitalised on a glaring error from City’s new goalkeeper, Ederson Moraes who fluffed his lines. Lukaku used his head to steer the ball past him, and from an impossible angle, got his goal, much to the delight of the United bench and fans, and to the disbelief of City defender’s, who looked shocked that he could even attempt to score such a goal. He looked sharp, and completely dominated City’s central defensive duo of Vincent Kompany and Tosin Adarabioyo.

In the 53rd minute, he had a shot which rattled the crossbar and overall, he looked very good in what will be great comfort to his critics, who naturally were skeptical of his ability to perform, given the huge amount he was signed for.

Here are some of the best tweets about his performances.


Lukaku has scored 85 Premier League goals in the past 5 years and, at 24, is one the youngest players to have reached that figure. Last season, he scored 25 times for Everton, only 4 behind top scorer, Harry Kane.
