REPLAY

Romelu Lukaku just scored a carbon copy of his goal against Bournemouth and didn’t celebrate again

We had to make sure we weren't watching a replay from mid week

London Buses.

Romelu Lukaku had not scored for seven games and then he scores two in a row.

And they are exactly the same goal.

He finally goes ahead of Rooney for league goals this year

There had been question marks looming over the big Belgian over whether he was worth the £70 million Man United splashed on him in the summer.

His barren run had people saying he was a flat track bully.

Goals against Bournemouth and West Brom don’t really disprove that theory but at least he is scoring again.

We had to seriously check that we were not watching replays of the mid-week games.

Rashford has the ball on the left and makes room for a cross.

Lukaku is lurking in the area between the two West Brom centre backs, just as he was against Bournemouth.

The ball comes in and he gets above both defenders to plant it into the top corner, leaving the keeper with no chance.

Just like he did against Bournemouth.

The similarities are almost too much.

Even what he did after the goal was creepily close to what happened at Old Trafford.

Again, the striker refused to celebrate after putting his team in front.

Lukaku’s celebrations were very muted

Lukaku’s celebrations were very muted

Phil Neville has said it was a show of respect to crowd against Bournemouth as Lukaku was making up for a bad performance against City in the derby.

Yes, he played for West Brom but surely Lukaku should celebrate getting some crucial goals?

Especially when they are not coming for him that often.
