Romelu Lukaku capped his Premier League debut for Manchester United with a brace in Sunday afternoon’s 4-0 win over West Ham United at Old Trafford.
The summer signing from Everton has now scored three goals in two competitive appearances for the Red Devils after netting in the UEFA Super Cup against Champions League holders Real Madrid in Macedonia last week.
The brace took Lukaku to 120 Premier League goals since moving to England from Anderlecht in 2011, and the Belgian will be looking to continue his fine start to the season when Man United travel to Wales to face Swansea City on Saturday afternoon.
Man United’s official Twitter account posted a video of Lukaku’s first Man United goal on Wednesday, and as expected, the response section brought a host of praise for the forward.
Many have doubted whether the 24-year-old has the credentials to make his mark against the so-called bigger teams in the league, and indeed in Europe, but Man United supporters are certain that their new number nine will prove to be an overwhelming success.
