It was a class act from the Romelu Lukaku as he had maintained his body position superbly and fired a low shot at the second post in the goal. The Goalkeeper had no chance to save that shot. In the time of the second goal of Manchester United it was a brilliant one two between Manchester United’s winter signing Alexis Sanchez and Romelu Lukaku and Lukaku didn’t commit any mistake to put it into the goal. It was a great performance from the Belgian star player and had a huge impact in the match.
