Manchester United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has praised Romelu Lukaku after his side got a 3-1 victory against Crystal Palace in the EPL last night.
Lukaku provided a brace while Ashley Young sealed the game for Manchester United to earn valuable three points at Selhurst Park. Joel Ward however gave Crystal Palace a consolation goal.
Speaking about Lukaku’s effort in the game, Solskjaer said:
“Lukaku has been putting a shift in for the team, doing loads more running than he normally does but he was a number nine again today and he got two goals. Fantastic.
“He was through the middle. We created chances for him, he put them away well.”
“He’s done loads of running up and down the line, right wing, left wing. He’s had a different role because of Rash’s form.
“He got a chance up front. Two very good finishes, could have had another one as well earlier on, so I’m very pleased for Rom. He is a quality finisher.
“It’s great to have him around the place, always happy, always working on his finishing.”
“He’s played more than you think, but he’s played wide right, wide left, so it’s Rash’s form that has moved him out there. Now with Rash’s injury he grabbed the chance.”
