Willian had given Chelsea the lead at Old Trafford after finishing off a superb Chelsea counter-attack on the 32nd minute in which David De Gea made a rare mistake with the Brazilian’s effort merely straight at the Spanish number one.
Lukaku however proved to be a hero for Jose Mourinho’s men on the 39th minute as he finished off a move inside Chelsea’s box.
Clever Manchester United build-up play with both Alexis Sanchez and Anthony Martial involved saw Lukaku neatly finish off a move that he was initially involved in.
The goal brings Lukaku’s Premier League tally to 13 for the season and in such a big match today’s goal is perhaps the most important of the bunch.
