Belgium 3-3 Mexico: Romelu Lukaku equalises for hosts

Share

Belgian worldwide Lukaku failed to score for the seventh successive game following his blistering start at the Old Trafford club.

One player Mourinho will be glad to see back is Paul Pogba, who has been missed since his injury earlier in the season, and it seems that United have been missing a player like him in the middle of the park - and the fans have put their dropped points down to not having a top midfielder in the side. 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.

The former Everton hitman hasn't netted in seven United games.

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 started by blowing teams away, being dominant and creating chances".

Although he has been less than lethal in front of goal for United in the Premier League, Lukaku had a feeling his dry spell wouldn't last too long.

But he insists he is relishing the prospect and hopes Ibrahimovic can help United real in Pep Guardiola's rampant City side, who are averaging 3.45 goals per game.

"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 has previously been stated that the 36-year-old could return for the crucial clash against Arsenal at the beginning of December, and Lukaku stated that Ibrahimović's return "motivates" him as it is another "good player to add to the squad".
