After failing to add some big names to the squad during the summer transfer window, Manchester United are struggling to achieve something bigger and better. It looks like the other teams like Manchester City, Arsenal, Liverpool, and Chelsea are way ahead of The Red Devils.

Manchester United boss, Jose Mourinho, also believes that it would be a miracle for Manchester United to finish the campaign among the top four teams in the Premier League 2018-19.

Manchester United are at the 8th spot on the league table with 22 points, and the #4 team, Arsenal, are ahead of Manchester United on 30 points. The results are not just coming for Jose Mourinho and company.

It looks like any team could beat Manchester United, and a few reports have told us that Zinedine Zidane could replace Jose Mourinho as the next manager of Manchester United.

There are some talented players in the Manchester United squad, and Romelu Lukaku is one of those players at Old Trafford.

After a great World Cup performance for Belgium, it was expected that Lukaku would score some great goals this season, but it is still is an expectation for the Manchester United fans to see Lukaku's name as the top goalscorer in the Premier League. 

Last season Lukaku scored 16 goals in 34 appearances, which are not good numbers for the centre-forward. This season Lukaku has scored 5 goals in his 13 appearances for the club.

He is fast, intelligent, powerful, and he proved his scoring ability in World Cup 2018. Lukaku is the only renowned striker in the Manchester United squad, and he also has the advantage of big physique and height. His shielding on the ball is also as good as a central defender's.


Romelu Lukaku needs some motivation as well as support from his fellow players to thrive this season. If Jose Mourinho can do the needful by motivating the big Belgian, then we could see him attain similar heights as in World Cup 2018 as well as in the colours of Everton.

In the big Belgian, Jose Mourinho certainly has the firepower to fire Man Utd unto the upper echelons of the PL table.
