Belgium international, Romelu Lukaku, opened the scoring for Manchester united in the 5th match of the season against a Watford side that came from behind to beat Tottenham 2-1.
The big Belgian lashed onto Ashley Young’s precise low cross and put the ball beyond the reach of the Watford goalkeeper. In so doing, Romelu Lukaku has now scored 20 Premier League goals for Manchester United in his first 39 games. Only Ruud van Nistelrooy (26), Robin van Persie (32) and Dwight Yorke (34) have reached that milestone in fewer games.
As a result of this, fans have been singing his praise on social media.

Whip them in and Lukaku will score
We badly need players who can keep providing crosses or Lukaku is wasted
