Romelu Lukaku 'blasted United teammates' following defeat to Chelsea

Fuming Lukaku turned on Man Utd teammates after Chelsea blank Manchester United's Romelu Lukaku says he 'was born to score' after ending goalless streak

The 24-year-old has been at the centre of attention surrounding Manchester United recently, with fans creating a controversial song for their £76m striker that has since been banned.

Lukaku insists he is relishing the prospect of lining up alongside Ibrahimovic and is confident the pair can help United reel in Pep Guardiola's rampant City side, who are averaging 3.45 goals per game.

Romelu Lukaku has admitted it is a relief that he's got back into goalscoring ways with a double while on global duty with Belgium. However, Lukaku hasn't found the back of the net in the league since a 4-0 victory over Crystal Palace in September.

At the end of last month Mourinho said Lukaku was "untouchable in my team" before saying "I have to protect my players when I feel they deserve it".

The Red Devils started their second Premier League season under Jose Mourinho brilliantly, winning three of their first six games by a margin of 4 goals.

Read Paul McGrath every week in The Sunday World . He said: "Ireland didn't really surprise us". We're at home, we've got to go for it.

"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". I was born to score.

The Express report he said:"Listen, if he's not going to let him take a penalty after spending £80million on him, and he's not scoring goals, you think he's going to play him over Ibrahimovic?"

"I am like a leopard in the box".

Nicol says the fact Mourinho does not trust Lukaku with penalties shows he will be dropped when Zlatan Ibrahimovic is fit.

"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." . "We can do much better than we are doing now".
