Lukaku finally makes big-game breakthrough for Manchester United
Romelu Lukaku's goal against Chelsea on Sunday was his first for Manchester United against a side in the top eight of the Premier League.
Romelu Lukaku finally made a splash against top-tier opposition for Manchester United, cancelling out a Willian goal for Chelsea at Old Trafford on Sunday.
Belgium striker Lukaku came into the fixture against the Blues with 21 goals to his name in all competitions, but none of them coming against the top eight teams in the Premier League.
Such a barren run has led to criticism of the former Everton man, but Jose Mourinho has kept faith and that was rewarded on Sunday.
Lukaku latched onto a neat flick from Anthony Martial to cancel out Willian's powerful opener and send the sides in for half-time level at 1-1.
1 - Romelu Lukaku has scored 13 goals in the Premier League this season, however this was his first against a team currently in the top eight. Overdue. pic.twitter.com/bi4Qn1IwhY— OptaJoe (@OptaJoe) February 25, 2018
