Man Utd star ripped into team-mates after Chelsea defeat

Man Utd star ripped into team-mates after Chelsea defeat

The ex-Everton star would now be hoping to continue this form for the Old Trafford outfit, when they host Newcastle on Saturday.

Following his brace, which ended a run of seven matches without a goal at club level, Lukaku spoke confidently about his abilities and remarkable statistics for somebody so young.

Romelu Lukaku has admitted it is a relief that he's got back into goalscoring ways with a double while on global duty with Belgium.

The £75million summer signing hasn't found the net in a United shirt since his strike against Crystal Palace at the end of September.

At the end of last month Mourinho said Lukaku was "untouchable in my team" before saying "I have to protect my players when I feel they deserve it".

United have fallen eight points behind derby rivals Manchester City in the title race after one win, one draw and two defeats in their last four matches.

"When you face a team like us it's hard for opponents", Lukaku concluded. "Him (Ibrahimovic) coming back will help us chase Manchester City".

"It (Ibrahimovic's return) motivates me really, because he's another good player to add to the squad", Lukaku told Sky Sports News.

"I was born to score", the striker proclaimed.

"Listen, if he's not going to let him take a penalty after spending £80million on him, and he's not scoring goals, you think he's going to play him over Ibrahimovic?" However, he did bag a brace last night for Belgium, in an worldwide friendly, and after the game he compared his abilities in the box to a leopard.

Now, it seems that when last season's star, Zlatan Ibrahimovic is back, Mourinho will consider his options and it seems that Lukaku should be anxious. "We can do much better than we are doing now".
