Is Lukaku Becoming Detached?’


Former Arsenal defender Nigel Winterburn has questioned whether Romelu Lukaku is being deployed in the best position for Manchester United.

“I would love to know how many chances Manchester United are creating against the bottom half of the Premier League and how many chances Lukaku gets,” Winterburn said.

“And again against the top half of the league, again the same thing – how many chances are United creating and how many is Lukaku getting?

“Because we know Jose Mourinho sets up slightly differently against the top teams and you are going to have less chances to score anyway.

“Rather than looking at Lukaku and wondering what he is not doing, you have to look at whether it is the team set-up around him. Is he becoming detached in the position that he is playing?

“But if you don’t score against the big teams you are always going to get that question mark around you.”
