Former Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku gave a stunned response to Jesse Lingard’s brilliant solo goal for West Ham last night.
The England international has been one of the Premier League’s most in-form players since leaving Man Utd to join West Ham on loan in the January transfer window.

Lukaku is another top player United may be regretting letting go, with the Belgium international also struggling in his time in Manchester before showing world class form with his new club Inter Milan.
It will be interesting to see what happens with Lingard this summer, with West Ham likely to want to keep him permanently if they can.
