Lukaku blames teammates for his lack of scoring

Tonight is the big night, the night of the significant returns and maybe the night where Romelu Lukaku gets back on the scoresheet.

Ronaldo is back at Old Trafford and Mourinho says that the fans will show Ronaldo the respect he deserves, according to calciomercato.com.

The world champion Paul Pogba is also facing his old team for the first time since rejoining after the record-breaking transfer.

With those two factors aside, we also have a Belgian striker for Manchester United who has had some trouble finding the net this season.

When Lukaku talked to the media, he had a pretty bizarre reason for failing to score in the last seven games in the United shirt. Since during his international duties, he has scored five goals in the last four games, writes belfasttelegraph.co.uk.

“I don’t know,” Lukaku said. “With Belgium, I’ve been playing for 10 years, since I was 16. Players know me much more”.

“Here I still think my teamwork between myself and my team-mates can improve. It’s something that we’re working on”.

“The players need to know me and know my movement. When that starts clicking I think the results I have with Belgium will also come here.”
