Fuming Lukaku turned on Man Utd teammates after Chelsea blank

"I feel great to be honest".

"I was born for this", Lukaku is quoted as saying by Het Laatse Nieuws. I don't think many strikers of my generation have as many goals as me. However, he did bag a brace last night for Belgium, in an global friendly, and after the game he compared his abilities in the box to a leopard.

United now trail leaders Manchester City by eight points after 11 rounds of fixtures.

Lukaku netted in the 55th minute but Lozano turned the game on its head, scoring a minute later before putting Mexico ahead on 60 minutes.

With a price tag that could eventually reach £90m, Lukaku is under intense scrutiny to deliver at Old Trafford.

With Henrikh Mkhitaryan struggling of late, Ibrahimovic, who scored 28 goals last season, will help take the goalscoring burden off of Lukaku's shoulders. "We started by blowing teams away, being dominant and creating chances".

"We started by blowing teams away, being dominant and creating chances, but in the last few weeks we didn't play at the same level and that made it more hard for me". "We can do much better than we are doing now".

And United ended up suffering their second Premier League loss of the season after Alvaro Morata headed Chelsea's victor last Sunday.

What isn't helping their title challenge is the blistering pace Pep Guardiola's men are setting, in terms of both results and some quite exceptional performances.

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". "When you work hard it is rewarded, but the most important thing, as I always say, is the team". "Ibrahimovic coming back will help us chase Manchester City".

"I think when I signed everybody was asking questions", the Belgian stated on recent criticism of himself. "And I think starting so well surprised a few people." .
