Romelu Lukaku on the ball against Everton

Mourinho believes Lukaku's goals will come

Monday 29 October 2018 07:10

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho was pleased with Romelu Lukaku’s second-half cameo in the win over Everton at Old Trafford and is confident that ‘life will change’ for our no.9 once he finds the back of the net again.

Lukaku started the 2-1 victory over the Toffees on the Reds' substitutes bench but the Belgian forward replaced Marcus Rashford midway through the second half and earned post-match praise from his manager. 

“I think when he scores one goal, life will change for him,” Mourinho told MUTV.

Lukaku went close to scoring with a header after coming on in the second half.

“At the moment, I think he's under that pressure that normally the strikers put on themselves, plus the press obviously. So it's not an easy life for strikers when they don't score goals.

“I think he's feeling a little bit of that, but he came into the game with good movement," he continued.

"Romelu showed good attitude, he wasn't losing the ball, his first touch was better, he was much more composed, so he will be better.

“I have no doubts that soon he will start scoring goals," concluded Mourinho.
