Man Utd fans were in awe of Romelu Lukaku's assist for Anthony Martial's goal

Romelu Lukaku, probably the most debated name in the Premier League this season.

The Manchester United striker has not exactly been the hallmark of consistency following his £75m move from Everton in the summer. 

Nevertheless, he has still scored 11 Premier League goals while also recording four assists, not exactly the worst return.

A lot of the criticism aimed at him this season has been his inability to hold the ball up, something which United thrived off with Zlatan Ibrahimovic last season.

But, the big Belgian showed his prowess in that department against Burnley, with his strength and ability on the ball contributing to one of the assists of the season.

Lukaku picks the ball up near the halfway line, shrugs off defenders, brings the ball into space and finds Anthony Martial on the left-wing perfectly.

Just watch below and marvel at what Lukaku really can do when he puts his mind to it.


Not bad, right?

United fans on Twitter were absolutely loving the input from their centre-forward and have him some deserved praise.


Nice to see Lukaku getting some well-deserved praise.

The win for United at Turf Moor means they just about keep themselves ahead of Chelsea - who won 4-0 vs Brighton earlier in the day - while also giving noisy neighbours Man City something to think about.

Jose Mourinho's side face a hugely tough test in their next Premier League fixture as they make the trip to face Tottenham at Wembley.

Will Alexis Sanchez feature in the match? It looks very likely.
