Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku has officially been named as the PFA Fans’ Player of the Month for August and September, and Red Devils fans believe it is the right decision.

There would have been more than a few raised eyebrows when United spent an initial £75m to bring the Belgium international to Old Trafford from Everton during the summer transfer window, but the 24-year-old has hit the ground running and fired Jose Mourinho’s men to a superb start to the season.
The centre-forward has scored seven goals and provided one assist in his seven Premier League appearances this term, and he stepped up to the plate when his side needed him most by scoring the winning goal in a rare below-par showing by the team against Southampton in September.
Lukaku has only failed to find the net against Leicester City in the top flight so far, with his new club already looking like genuine title contenders.
Man United supporters were quick to have their say on the news via social media, and while many believe winning the award is “well deserved”, others believe it will be the “first of many”.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
