Manchester United fans loved Lukaku performance

Manchester United fans are over the moon about Romelu Lukaku, after the Belgian put in another good shift in their FA Cup win.

Much like Paul Pogba, Romelu Lukaku seems to be judged with different standards to other big money signings.

Maybe it’s the fact that he came from within the Premier League, maybe it’s the sheer size of his transfer fee, or maybe it’s just because it’s Manchester United, but the Belgian has taken plenty of stick this season.

Despite the negativity from elsewhere though, Manchester United fans are in love with their new number nine, and he showed why yet again on Saturday.

Lukaku couldn’t get on the scoresheet in the Red Devils’ 2-1 semi-final win, but his tireless work rate and passion for the shirt has pleased fans.

He also got an assist, though even his staunchest defenders would admit that was a little bit lucky.

The former Everton man has more goals in his debut season at Old Trafford than any of Carlos Tevez, Wayne Rooney or even Andy Cole managed. He also has nearly double the goals tally of Alvaro Morata, who he has been compared to throughout the season (27 to 14).

Fans are heaping praise on their big Belgian, and some of the best Twitter reactions can be found below…
