Manchester United fans and manager Jose Mourinho will be breathing a collective sigh of relief tonight as Romelu Lukaku ends his long goal drought with a strike for Belgium.
The 24-year-old had been seven games without a goal for the Red Devils, putting in some quiet displays as Mourinho’s side suffered disappointing defeats to Huddersfield Town and Chelsea.
Still, Lukaku finally got a slice of luck tonight and will have been thrilled to score one of the more fortuitous goals of his career so far.
With a cross chipped in by Chelsea’s Eden Hazard, Lukaku somehow diverted the ball into the back of the net as it bounced off him rather than going in off any meaningful contact.
Lukaku won’t care though, as he’ll hope this strike can give him his confidence back before returning to action for United.
Lukaku joined United from Everton in the summer and started superbly, showing he could be one of the key players in this season’s title race.
However, Mourinho has become rather dependent on the former Chelsea man, with his side not looking nearly as convincing since he stopped scoring with such ease.
